Pilates is mainly known for its positive impact on core strength, flexibility, and postural alignment, but studio owner Laura Helsel has even bigger plans for the practice. In 2004, Helsel developed a new perspective on Pilates centered on therapeutic exercise, a perspective she calls The Pilates Process. Specifically designed to address injuries and chronic conditions, the Pilates Process has been taught—generally by Helsel herself, or a convincing hologram—at Pilates studios across Ontario. But despite the medical slant of her proprietary method, her home studio still offers basic Pilates classes, as well as massage services.
