Move beyond your traditional fitness routines with pilates—a holistic approach that utilizes physical strength training and breathing exercises to work both your body and your mind. Stop in at one of Basi Pilates’ 13 studios in Tokyo and find out how 20 million other pilates practitioners worldwide train their minds to control their muscles, build flexibility, increase strength and improve coordination. These unique exercises tone the deep muscles that support your skeleton—not just the surface muscles affected by ordinary workouts. Pilates practice helps you access newfound power from the very first time you try it. To consistently improve your posture and physical well-being, the muscle contractions you learn can be managed daily—at home or at the studio. The studio sessions will also teach you how to direct your thoughts inward and use concentration and breathing exercises to help focus your mind—a little like working out and meditating at the same time.

The Grinberg Method is the ultimate in holistic therapies. By deeply relaxing the muscles, it can help cure chronic pain, heavy scarring and deep wounds. This special treatment uses unique breathing exercises to allow a new and fresh energy to flow over the body. It can teach people to let their body’s energy heal itself and to have a greater freedom of movement and expression. The soreness caused by daily exertion, fatigue and cumulative lack of attention to the body can be alleviated through the Grinberg touch technique on the affected muscles, and you’ll be able to notice where specifically the pain occurs and how to manage it. You’ll also learn how to handle stress, to recognize and stop repetitive behavior and get closer to living the life you’ve always wanted to live.
