PILATES

 

Pilates is a form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movements.

The core muscles are deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. Strengthening of those muscles develops stability through the entire torso, which helps in overcoming the back pain. As the trunk is properly stabilized, pressure on the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and more efficiently.

Pilates teaches awareness of neutral alignment of the spine and the breath which are part of six principles of Pilates.  

  

 

 

 

 Pilates helps to:

• Increase and create the balance between the strength and flexibility

• Creates awareness of and strengthen stability

• Improves coordination

• Releases stress, improve posture

 

All exercises are developed with modifications that can make a workout safe and challenging for a person at any level.
