Salire Pilates - New Orleans Pilates Reformer

Pilates (pi-LAH-teez) is a form of body conditioning created more than 80 years ago by Joseph H. Pilates.

Salire takes this form of isotonic exercises developed and practiced to:

  • Simultaneously stretch, strengthen, and align the body.
  • Eliminate excess tension and strain on the muscles.
  • Help you improve muscle control, flexibility, coordination, strength, and tone through physical and mental conditioning.

Combining stretches and strengthening exercises, Pilates is designed to work the entire body in fluid movements. Salire will train your body to work as a single integrated unit as it becomes better aligned and balanced. This increases the efficiency of movement throughout the entire body.

Pilates is a full-body conditioning program of approximately 500 designated movements performed on a mat or specific apparatus. The movements are designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles involved, opening the joints and releasing tension.

Pilates is based on the principle that before working the peripheral parts of the body, the core needs to be strong and stable. In fact, stabilization is the first of six Principles of Pilates that also include control, concentration, flow, breath and precision.

With these principles in mind, our instructors will help you focus primarily on the "Powerhouse," or deepest abdominal muscles, and work the rest of the body from this core connection.

Through regular sessions with our staff on both the mat and specialized Pilates apparatus, our clients seek to develop an equal balance between abdominal and lower back musculature to improve strength, stretch, stamina, and stability.

Over time, we will help create a strong foundation from which one can achieve new heights of physical fitness and control, as well as emotional well-being and balance.
