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 might be developing, as it 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.
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 so all your fitness movement activities are improved.
Pilates exercises work the entire body, elongating the muscle as you movewith precision and control. The result is your body has a longer, leaner look. You create more balance and symmetry to your body and movements.
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.
