What is Pilates?
An Introduction to Pilates
Pilates is for everybody. It has something to offer people of all ages and levels of fitness from beginners to elite athletes.
Pilates exercises are controlled, flowing movements performed with concentration. As you need to focus completely on your movements, your mind feels relaxed and free from stress. It is an exercise with both physical and mental benefits.
Pilates works to improve your strength, mobility and flexibility. In particular, it will help to strengthen your core which in turn will support your lower back and improve posture, balance and coordination.
