Efficiency and Functional Movement for Whole-Body Health

Efficiency is the art of utilizing a minimum amount of energy to achieve maximum results.  For our body, “efficiency” equates to functional movement.  When the lever & pulley systems in the body are precisely working and releasing for support, balance, and control the result is easy, effortless, and efficient movement.

Pilates is a wonderful way to develop efficient muscle movement habits that in time can transfer to your walking, running, recreational sport, and daily life activities.  Efficient movement can enhance your strength, flexibility, speed, power, balance, control and will help keep you safe and injury-free. 

Pay attention to your movements, be efficient, and enjoy optimal whole-body health!
