Our Mission

To spread the work of Mr. Joseph H. Pilates so that each member of our community develops an expertise in the movement of their own bodies. To maintain the nuances of this method that make it both unique and effective. The core of the traditional Pilates method is formed through a combination of:

  • Precise movement often using equipment to specifically target a particular area
  • Progression of movement to continue to transform the body toward health (within a single session and over the course of several sessions)
  • Efficiency in each and every movement taught

At the Art of Control®, each and every teacher has the expertise to deliver the above and more. It is this that makes the traditional Pilates method so effective.

"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness" - Joseph Pilates
