"Breathing is the first act of life, and the last. Our very life depends on it...

Therefore, above all, learn how to breathe correctly." - Joseph Pilates

Research is continuing to find the benefits of breathwork on the body: 

improved stress response, mental health support and resiliency, increased strength and performance improvements, and pain management.

Pilates and functional breathwork training are helpful tools as you learn to implement breathwork practices into your daily routine.

Attending class at Freeman Pilates was the first time I thought "wow, this is a practice I will continue for the rest of my life." The functional, mobility, and strength benefits of this practice are amazing. The variety of teachers and classes is a huge plus, along with the trust that I will have a positive and beneficial experience no matter which class I take. This is a warm and accepting community, and I leave feeling physically and emotionally renewed with the energy I need for my day - not physically exhausted and depleted. My thanks to the incredible team and students at Freeman Pilates for being a highlight of my week!
