Increase Your Strength and Endurance With SEMI Pilates Sessions!

What is pilates? Pilates is a type of exercise developed by and named for Joseph Pilates. Pilates was living in England, working as a circus performer and boxer, when he was placed in forced internment in England at the outbreak of WWI. While in the internment camp, he began to develop the floor exercises that evolved into what we now know as Pilates Mat Work.

Pilates began working with and rehabilitating other detainees who were suffering from diseases and injuries. After WWI, he packed his bags and took a boat to New York City, where he and his wife Clara taught in their studio from 1926-1966. Pilates passed away at the age of 87 in 1967, but his exercises and theories are with us to this day, having been modified by advancements in the understanding of core training, stability and neuromuscular function.

How Does Pilates Work?:

Pilates sessions strengthen your core muscles, and increase the flexibility of certain muscle groups. Joining the pilates sessions at SEMI's Toronto sports medicine clinic can help you both prevent and treat:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
