Pilates was originally designed by Joseph Pilates in the 20th century and has been used by many people to restore muscle imbalances and acquire more efficient movement patterns. Pilates is a system of exercises using specialized apparatus, springs and other equipment that is designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, endurance, posture, self awareness, self image and mental focus.

Brendan is a Comprehensive Polestar Certified Pilates Teacher-PMA® and utilizes the most scientific application of Pilates for corrective exercise enhancement, restoration of movement and for a return to health. Polestar Pilates is excellent way of facilitating and enhancing changes clients experience during the Rolfing Structural Integration Series, to reduce pain and to improve natural coordinated movement.

Pilates is an excellent method of rehabilitation and corrective exercise. Pilates is similar to yoga in it’s whole body awareness, and the development of the mind, but also focuses more specifically on core strengthening and correction of structural imbalances.

At Whole Body Kinetics, we utilize a wide range of Pilates apparatus. The use of spring loaded resistance facilitates spine stabilizers in all three planes of motion. This stabilization creates healthy and efficient movement pattern by organizing the posture of the client. All comprehensive Pilates apparatus is used during Private Sessions, allowing Brendan to provide one-on-one guidance for most efficient body awareness and accomplishing our goals. Semi-private pilates classes use floor mats, Wall Towers and other props. These classes are ideal to boost your beneficial experience in receiving the Rolfing® Structural Integration Ten Series.

Group mat Pilates classes at Whole Body Kinetics are also helpful to improve strength, flexibility and coordination.
