Humans are built to move. And movement changes us. It heals us, inspires us, renews us and brings us joy. Through movement we celebrate, grieve, tell our stories and prepare for battle. Moving is vital to keeping us healthy and well; and when we can't, or don't move, it impacts our physical, mental and spiritual well being. My goal is to help you move better, easier, and with more enjoyment with Pilates and a personal training approach. – Scotti Harwood, PMA®-CPT, owner, Source Pilates, LLC
Big, small, fit, not-so-fit, healthy, injured or ill. Pilates meets you where you are and takes your health and physical abilities to a new level.
Pilates is a low-impact exercise method you can practice throughout your life to maintain your freedom of movement, increase your strength and fitness and relieve stress.
Pilates’ low-impact exercises focus on moving from a strong core to prevent injury and increase strength and flexibility throughout the whole body. Like yoga, Pilates builds Mind-Body coordination by requiring the mind and body to work as a team to concentrate on controlled movements in each exercise. As a result of increased body awareness and motor control, you will move through your daily life with more balance and ease. With its emphasis on correct and full breathing, Pilates also offers a much-needed calming and stress-relieving benefit.

Pilates is a favorite cross-training tool due to its focus on building core strength and movement control. Since the exercises focus on developing a uniform body, it's great for any sport that creates body imbalances such as tennis or golf. Athletes find that a Pilates practice not only increases their power output and control, but also reduces the frequency and severity of injuries.
Today's sedentary occupations and reliance on technology are hurting our health and fitness. As a result of "sitting disease," we are injured doing everyday tasks more frequently and find our leisure activities more challenging. Pilates is based on the functional movements that humans used to perform every day. It helps counteract all our “sitting” and retrains your body to move functionally and safely. So you can not only navigate the stairs at work, but also enjoy playing with your children and continue to remain physically active as you age.
Research now provides evidence for Pilates as a healing and recovery tool. Doctors and physical therapists recommend the practice as a safe and effective follow-up program or as part of a patient's recovery plan. Joseph Pilates created the equipment used in Pilates specifically for people who came to him with an illness or injury. Working on the Pilates machines, like the Pilates Reformer safely builds strength and functioning.
