The Pilates Center of Maine is excited to introduce Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) to our studio. FST is an excellent complementary therapy to your Pilates workout. Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and joints. Through the gentle approach of FST one can reduce tightness and increase range of mobility.
Founder Tünde Schwartz has over 15 years experience in the fitness industry, receiving certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine for personal training, Advanced Level Comprehensive Teacher’s Certification through Power Pilates New York with Master teacher Susan Moran, and advanced certification through the Pilates Standard with Master teacher Bob Liekens.
Pilates is a whole body workout covering strength, cardio, balance, and flexibility. Improving these areas leads to a strong core, a strong heart and improved balance - all of which can help prevent injuries as one ages.
The essence of Pilates - a strong core - is integral to dance training. Alignment of the spine and pelvic areas and a full range of motion enables fluid and controlled movement during Pilates exercises which are essential principles of dance.
Private Sessions are a great way for students to introduce themselves to Pilates. Working on-on-one with an instructor, students have the opportunity to understand the methods and purpose for each exercise.
