Pilates (or Contrology, as it was originally known and which relates to the use of your mind to control muscles) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit. By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal alignment and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, you become acutely in tune with your body and actually learn how to control its movement.
The benefits of Pilates are countless, but here are a few important ones:
- Develops core strength
- Improves and corrects posture
- Increases flexibility
- Exercises the body as a whole
BASI (Body Arts and Science International) was established in 1989 by Rael Isacowitz. BASI preserves the legacy of Joseph and Clara Pilates, while complementing their method with contemporary scientific knowledge. Though a BASI education is anchored in anatomy, physiology and scientific principles, its emphasis is on the aesthetic quality of every movement.
Founder and instructor, Adelle Wentzel, is a BASI certified instructor and opened Blu Core Pilates in January 2013.

“bbarre less is about connecting your mind to the body, so that you not only strive to move with precision but also have fun! Classic barre exercises have been adapted to be performed in the center of the room either standing or on the floor. You will challenge the core for balance and total body proprioception. Dancers have performed floor barre for generations as it allows them to explore new movements and gives them the strength to move with elegance and ease utilizing the floor for support.
bbarre less moves to the music, enhances your flexibility and challenges your body to move effortlessly like a dancer!” – Tracey Mallett.
