Kuva Joseph Pilateksesta


Pilates Circle –studio is dedicated to teach and preserve the work of Joseph Pilates in the purest form. You will stretch and strengthen your whole body in every exercise. The movement always begins from the center of the body. We follow the vision of Joseph Pilates (1883 – 1967) about health and movement. The goal of the training is a uniformly developed strong body.

After regular training you will feel and see the results soon. We recommend training at least twice a week to get the best results but even weekly participation in classes will improve your health. You will enjoy your daily life and other exercise activities in a new fresh way. Many top athletes trust original pilates to help them get better results in their other sports. Even clients who previously have disliked exercising will suddenly enjoy it. Pilates also improves your looks. Better circulation makes your skin glow. You will have lean strong muscles without building muscle bulk. Concentrating and controlling your body with your mind will elevate your spirit. It works like meditation to clear your mind and you will cope better with daily stress.
