Empower Pilates Studio Stretches All The Right Muscles

By Keith Donaldson

Located in Albuquerque, Empower Pilates Studio gives the city a place to go to relax, recharge, and get fit. With a variety of machines and classes, Empower is the one-stop studio for everything and anything Pilates. Lourdes Avitia, owner and instructor, answered some of our questions about the studio's success.

How does Pilates enhance the body?

Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk, capable of creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. It is a safe, sensible exercise system that will help you look and feel your very best. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates also improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion.

The reformer offers all the famous benefits of Pilates including overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These things in turn lead to daily life improvements like better posture, graceful, efficient movement, and for many, relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain. The Pilates powerhouse muscles, the muscles of the core, are paramount for building strength. Flat abs, strong backs, toned buttock and thighs are all results of this emphasis.The reformer creates a unique and varied exercise environment.

What advice would you give to beginning practitioners?

First things first: try to find a good teacher in your local area. Get in contact with the Pilates Foundation and join a beginner's class. An experienced teacher is essential to help you get a proper introduction to the subtleties of Pilates. They can show you effectively what each exercise looks and feels like, and can respond to your individual needs.

At the beginning, you may dream of achieving a body like Pilates practitioner Madonna, but you've got to start from where you are. Positive thinking is important, and it's helpful to have a vision to aim for. Really be honest with yourself about your body's strengths, weaknesses and needs, and ask your teacher for help with realistic aims.

Results in Pilates come from working consistently. You need to be patient and regular in your practice of Pilates to achieve your goals, and sometimes the exercises you find most difficult may be the best medicine for you, so persevere. 'No pain no gain' is certainly not the Pilates way, and if you are finding an exercise painful you should stop. Some discomfort is likely to be a part of working your body in new ways, but listen to your body carefully, and with discipline and attention to detail you will gain.

What else would you like to convey to the public about your Pilates studio? What do you enjoy about your job?
