What Is Pilates?
Developed in early 1920's By Joseph Pilates this unique form of exercise is rooted in the various disciplines of physical exercise he practiced such as; calisthenics, karate, yoga, boxing and aerobatics coupled with his extensive knowledge of the human body and the healing effects of movement. He termed his form of exercise "Contrology" due its principle foundation of balanced, efficient control of the body and mind for movement mastery.
The core principles and techniques of Pilates practice are observed in the unique set of exercises he developed, which are performed using one's own body weight or the various Pilates equipment(the Reformer, Tower, Trap Table, Wunda Chair, Spine Corrector to name a few) that is comprised of a unique system of springs and straps to provide additional support or challenge.
Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise that consists of stretching, strengthening and stabilizing movements that are coordinated to breathing and promotes the health and balance of the body and mind.
Pilates focuses and emphasizes proper posture, core and back stability, strength, coordination, balance, mental focus and concentration, correct breathing patterns, precision of movement, the correction of imbalances and improper compensations in the body. The exercises are often performed in sitting, standing and reclined positions.
The effectiveness of Pilates practice is unparalleled and is why it is utilized in rehabilitation and for athletic performance enhancement.
"If your spine is inflexible at 30, you are OLD. If it is flexible at 60, you are YOUNG." - Joseph Pilate

A Personal Message From An Expert Pilates Instructor, Yvonne Castillo…
A special message from Founder, Dr. Yvonne Castillo.
Are you frustrated by pain, weakness, feeling tight, loss of energy, like your posture is decline, weight gain or just not feeling "like yourself"? Are you disappointed because pain, worry of getting hurt with exercise is holding you back from doing what you love and the lifestyle you desire)? Or maybe you are just a little nervous to start exercising again or for the first time?
Years ago, I was just like you, I was uncomfortable going to big, busy gyms and wanted a safe yet effective way to workout, improve my energy, strength, flexibility and feel in control of my body. Having an overly "flexible" body and I really needed stabilization and a way to safely gain control of how I moved to prevent hip and back issues to creep up when I drove or ran.
I was very nervous to start, and safely positioned myself in the back corner of the room, shielded from the instructor or others.
But, as I attended more classes I started to feel and see the difference- I never felt better, more confident and less hesitant when I traveled or wanted to push my runs, hikes and projects around the house!
I love the feeling of feeling as if I'm walking on air, light and without an ounce of stress or fatigue, yet feel strong and stable enough that I can handle anything that comes my way.
On my Pilates journey, my Pilates Mentor suggested that I become and instructor and share my experience and love for movement with others.
It has become my mission to share my love for movement and how it can empower you to live your BEST life possible!
You don’t have to sacrifice the activities you love or goals you have set over problems that can be fixed. That’s why we made this free guide just for you.

Early 30s, Santa Barbara, CA
I thought I could just heal on my own and take some ibuprofen and the pain would go away but it just wasn't working. My pain was pretty bad. It was affecting my personal life. I couldn't work out anymore. Since coming here I've had a lot less pain. I've felt a lot looser and my posture has been a lot better.
Mid 30s, Santa Barbara, CA
I was having severe pain in multiple parts of my body and unable to do my job, participate in the activities that I enjoy or sleep for more than a few hours. Yvonne clearly has a deep understanding of the human body and is also a very talented Pilates instructor. Her methods have changed my life.
Late 40s, Santa Barbara, CA
I tried all the things you usually try when you first get hurt, you know, you take some risks, you take some painkillers, you try icing, stretching, those sorts of things and they'd help in spots. But it just wasn't functioning the way I knew it should at this point. Now I can do most of what I want to do!
