A Private Studio offering Pilates Classes in Tucson, Arizona

Balance.  Flexibility.  Strength. 

Pilates restores the body while improving your balance, posture, strength, and coordination. By working the spine in all directions and strengthening the core muscles, Pilates is not only an overall conditioning program but also truly a practice for quality of life.

The postural correction and core strengthening that a consistent practice creates not only improves how we look, it often results in pain relief and alleviates chronic pain completely. Having strong abdominal muscles 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 and correct breathing, while simultaneously stretching and strengthening. It's gentle enough to be performed by pregnant women, and sophisticated enough to challenge and train elite athletes.

Body Fundamentals is a boutique studio offering Pilates classes in Tucson.

 Classical Pilates, Progressive Pilates and Post-Rehabilitation Pilates.

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 have a Pilates series package at Body Fundamentals, does it expire?
There is a time limit for use. All Pilates series packages must be used within 3 (three) months of purchase.

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, a Pilates practice 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.

"On a more subtle note, in the last year, I have noticed the benefits of Pilates spill over to my piano playing and painting. There is a lot more looseness and flexibility in my arms and fingers. I attribute this to core strength and my ability to remove tension and stiffness from my neck and shoulder areas.... a fluidity I never had before.  This is exactly what I try to do with my Pilates exercises. Transfer the tension and stress out of my neck and shoulders into my core." -Ken S., Artist
