L’ARC METHOD is based on four wellness concepts in order to create a holistic and long-lasting approach to wellness. Those four principals are Lengthen, Align, Reconnect and Center.

LENGTHEN  This Principal is achieved through the physical movement practice in each clients personal program.  Pilates is a very detailed and individualized approach to fitness and ensures access to every muscle during a clients session. This specialized training results in a long and lean body. Pilates adjusts imbalances and retrains the neuromuscular system, creating body-changing results.

ALIGN  The Pilates method stresses good posture and awareness of the placement of all parts of your body. Many factors such as strength imbalances, flexibility imbalances, postural habits and injuries result in most people having areas in the spine in which movement is restricted, movement is excessive, or movement is asymmetrical. One of the goals of Pilates is to fully utilize the potential range in each segment of the spine in a symmetrical manner. Proper alignment in all aspects of internal and external wellness creates the perfect balance.

RECONNECT   We each possess the ability to change our life’s trajectory. Through nutrition and mindfulness, our clients create a state in which they can encourage themselves to finally accomplish and maintain long-lasting life changes in their personal wellness program and goals.

CENTER   During your Pilates workout, you should consciously bring your focus to the center of your body. As you focus within, this Pilates principle suggests you will bring calm to both your body and spirit. Pilates called the center of your torso the “powerhouse,” from which all energy for exercise is derived. Understanding the basics of being grounded and centered coupled with some simple tools can protect you and help you feel more balanced. This can lead to an overall sense of emotional, psychological, and physical well-being, and ultimately, a state of bliss.
