Pure Pilates Chicago, LLC is a small, boutique Classical Pilates Studio where we focus on our students’ needs and goals and help you reach those goals through Private Lessons which can then lead the student into working in our small group classes.
All instructors are certified through Romana’s Pilates. This program has promised to maintain the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ work. Some apprentices take years to even enter the program and once they pass their assessment, they train vigorously for minimally a year. All PPC instructors attend continuing education and their own Private Lessons to deepen their practice and share their knowledge with their students.
At PPC, we want our students to work deeply to get the most out of each exercise and experience Pilates the way Joseph Pilates meant it to be done, gaining stretch and strength through control.
Through the exercises, we teach Joseph Pilates’ six principles: Flow, Precision, Breath, Concentration, Centering & Control. We also use Romana's 3 I's, Intelligence, Imagination, and Intuition to provide an effective and invigorating workout.
When our students join our small group classes, they will still receive individual corrections because our classes are small and private. By the time our students join a class, they know enough about your body and the exercises to constantly scan and make your corrections leading you to a workout that uses your mind (Concentration) to move from your Powerhouse (Centering) with correct alignment (Precision) and breathing (Breath) using accurate transitions (Flow) to gain stretch and strength (Control).
