Pilates strengthens your abs and back, reduces neck and shoulder tension, and improves flexibility. If you practice Pilates, your spine will become so flexible, you'll be able to scratch your nose with the back of your foot and make your shoulder blades clap (the method of applause Pilates founder Joseph Pilates preferred during his speaking gigs). Mind-BodyFitness is a Pilates studio, not a gym, so there are no membership fees, no exercise equipment to wipe down, and no sick-looking muscle dudes who are obviously juicing. If you're one of those guys, we recommend going to the Pontius Pilates Gym and Juicery.
