About Pilates

Pilates Principles:
• Awareness
• Balanced Muscle Development
• Breathing
• Control
• Concentration
• Centering
• Precision
• Rhythm
• Whole Body Movement
Balance. Core Strength. Postural Alignment. Flexibility.
Pilates provides all of those physical benefits and more. Whether you're just beginning an exercise program, are recuperating from an injury or accident, or are a fitness enthusiast, Pilates can benefit you.
The emphasis of a Pilates program is to restore the body to true balance while improving your posture, strength, and coordination.
Therapeutic by nature, Pilates is a core tenet in many physical therapy rehabilitation programs.
The postural correction and core strengthening that a consistent Pilates practice creates not only improves how we look, it also often results in pain relief or alleviates chronic pain completely. Having strong abdominal muscles — not just the vanity "six pack" — protects the back, often a weak point due to our often sedentary, technology-driven lives.
The Pilates method produces lean, lithe physiques. Pilates speaks to today's concerns of alignment, injury prevention, correct breathing, simultaneous stretching and strengthening, and creating harmony between mind, body, and spirit. It's gentle enough to be performed by pregnant women, sophisticated enough to challenge the super fit and safe enough to be prescribed as part of physical therapy.
Body Fundamentals of Tucson, Arizona specializes in Classical Pilates, Pilates Post-Rehabilitation Therapy, and Pilates and Movement Seminars.

Frequently Asked Questions


How often should I practice Pilates?
We recommend 2-3 hours a week for optimal results. One session a week will provide changes in the body, but it will take longer to see results. We recommend 2 private sessions and 1 group class or 2 group classes and 1 private session.
How soon will I notice results?
That depends. Each person has different needs that will determine how the body responds. However, most clients see results after 10 sessions.
If I have Parkinson's Disease (P.D.) can Pilates help?
Yes. One of the fundamental principles of Pilates is spinal alignment which aids in over-all Postural correction. Also, a consistent Pilates program results in balanced muscle development, and improved coordination and flexibility.
If I practice Yoga will Pilates still be beneficial?
Yes, they are a great complement to each other. While both focus on strength, flexibility and breathing, Pilates takes it a step further by increasing core abdominal strength, which can help improve your Yoga practice.
Do I need cardio activities if I take Pilates?
Yes, Pilates is a non-impact, strengthening workout that only becomes cardiovascular at the advanced levels.
If I'm injured, can I still do the work?
Absolutely, the training is designed to meet the individual. Each program is customized to the client's specific needs.
