The diverse system of spring based apparatus provides assistance and resistance fundamental to the proper alignment of the body and precise execution of the exercise. The Pilates Method is an appropriate exercise discipline for everyone at any stage of physical fitness. The results are efficiency and ease in movement from a stronger, integrated body.
These goals can only be achieved on equipment designed to provide the same detail and precision as our instructors. Teachers at 66 are all trained under Romana’s Pilates and dedicated to expanding their training and education. The best teachers are eternal students as our team is to maintaining the work of Joseph Pilates. Our standard of instruction is met in the choice of Pilates apparatus, tried and proven Gratz.
