WHAT IS PILATES
THE BENEFITS OF PILATES
Strengthens your core
Pilates is the best core workout out there. The core is more than just the abdominals, and you learn to activate the deeper muscles more than you ever would with conventional gym exercises. The core helps keep your trunk and pelvis stable.
Erases back pain
Pilates focuses on stabilizing and strengthening the back. A strong back and core helps alleviate and prevent back pain.
The Pilates Reformer helps safely control stretches while working with resistance. You learn to stay engaged while stretching, leading to greater flexibility over time. Many Pilates moves support the gentle release of muscle and joint tension.
Helps keep bones strong
Weight bearing and resistance exercises help build bone mass, which is especially important to women. Bones are constantly remodeling; over time bones lose mineral and get less dense and more brittle and prone to osteoporosis.
Improves body awareness and alignment
Pilates helps you engage the right muscles for every move, which leads to better control over one’s body. It teaches you correct body alignment, which is a huge injury preventer. It also helps with asymmetries in the body.
Pilates improves balance and coordination, concentration and memory of movements.
Pilates is a means for the body to release tension. It helps the mind to focus on the present, and breathing properly while exercising triggers the brain to calm down.
Helps to lose inches
Pilates helps to lose weight, or even more likely, it helps to lose inches.
Pilates looks deceptively easy, but it’s the small controlled movements that really makes it challenging. It’s easy to do Pilates incorrectly, so if you want to experience all the advantages, good form is essential, which is why it’s always best to start with a private session.
