What Is Pilates and How Can It Benefit You?
Pilates (pi-LAH-teez) is a form of body conditioning developed by Joseph H. Pilates in the early 20th century. The method encompasses exercises that simultaneously stretch and strengthen muscles. Pilates is based on the principle that before working the peripheral parts of the body, the core needs to be strong and stable. It is a disciplined form of exercise that combines Eastern and Western philosophies, which includes co-ordination and positioning of the body, balance, breathing techniques and body mechanics.
This innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise uses a floor mat or a variety of equipment to develop an equal balance between abdominal and lower back musculature to improve strength, stretch, stamina and stability. Pilates will help you develop a strong foundation from which you can achieve new heights of physical fitness and control, as well as emotional well-being and balance. It will also build strength without the excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. (Yeah, we know – who doesn’t want that?)
Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system that will help you look and feel your very best. It teaches:
Easy and graceful movement
Pilates also improves:
Economy of motion
