Add one more option to the already burgeoning Austin area Pilates scene.

The Pilates Movement Studio has opened at 3300 Bee Caves Road.

Joseph Pilates, a former gymnast who had suffered from asthma as a child, developed his fitness program after using hospital beds and other equipment to help rehabilitate soldiers injured during World War I. He later used similar techniques to help injured dancers.

The movements are designed to strengthen the core, improve flexibility and improve balance and coordination, and include a spiritual element.

The Pilates Movement Studio offers private, semi-private and group equipment classes. All abilities and fitness levels are welcome.

Cathy Brown has taught Pilates for six years and is certified by The Pilates Method Alliance. She trained at Core Dynamics in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and took the Advanced Teacher Training Program at The Pilates Center of Boulder, Colorado.
