Equipment Pilates at Sanctuary Bodyworks

Contrary to popular belief, Pilates is:

  • Not just for women
  • Not just like yoga
  • Not just for the flexible
  • And not just for core strength (although yes, the core is important!)

Pilates is one of the few forms of exercises that works from the inside out, strengthening the inner thighs, buttocks and lower back in addition to the core. Exercises are performed with an emphasis on control and can be tailored to any age or fitness level. Benefits include:

  • Improved posture and alignment
  • Enhanced flexibility and balance
  • Increased circulation and endurance
  • Strengthened core
  • Toned muscles

At Sanctuary, private Equipment Pilates sessions are taught using the infamous Gratz apparatus, and while “Gratz” may not mean a lot to you, it means a world of difference for your body. Widely known as the most sophisticated and user-friendly Pilates equipment available, Gratz equipment creates resistance with the body’s weight to help align, stretch and strengthen. Using this equipment, each individual receives a program that is specifically designed for their needs and goals, whether it be rehabilitation from injury, functional training, or counteracting general wear and tear on the body.

Here, Equipment Pilates trainer Ann Geraci shares a comprehensive mat Pilates routine you can do at home. Activate your core and all major muscle groups in under ten minutes.

I’ve been working with a Pilates Reformer Instructor at Sanctuary for just over a year.  It’s been the most amazing, challenging, and rewarding exercise that I have ever done.  I have neck and foot issues, and while challenging me every day, my instructor makes sure that I do not aggravate or re-injure them.  I feel stronger and more in tune with my body after each session. Try private Pilates Reformer sessions, you may become a believer, too!
