Strong Core Workout
Pilates focuses on strengthening your deep abdominal muscles, your back and your butt. This results in greater pelvic stability and less likelihood that you will sustain an injury in your back. You will also enjoy having a flat, toned and sleek tummy.
Pilates works to lengthen the spinal compression that you might be developing, especially as you grow older or spend long hours hunched over in front of a computer. Pilates encourages you to lengthen the back of your neck and to slide your shoulder blades back and down; encouraging better postural alignment and helping you to stand and sit straighter and taller.
Increased Strength and Flexibility
When you are doing Pilates, you are simultaneously strengthening and stretching your muscles. This gives your joints greater range of motion and also helps prevents injuries.
Longer and Leaner Muscles
Pilates exercises work the entire body, elongating the muscle as you move it with precision and control. The result is, your body has a longer, leaner look.
Improved Mind Body Connection
Pilates is not a mindless activity. There is a very strong focus on deep breathing. You perform certain moves as you inhale, while others as you exhale. This fosters a greater awareness about how you can integrate deep breathing and movement into positive body control.
Safe for Everyone
Pilates is a gentle, low impact workout. In every class, you are given a modification to address your own unique level of strength, flexibility, and fitness. With the proper instruction, it is safe for seniors, for those who are physically challenged, and also those who are recovering from injuries.
