WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates is an exercise philosophy based on mindful movement and aimed towards a healthier lifestyle.
It is an innovative and safe way to strengthen and shape your body using a Mat or various equipment such as reformer, chair, tower bar and Trapeze table.
Pilates is more than just a trend, but rather a mind-body practice, where the mind is engaged to think the movement through and execute it with a deeper level of understanding. Instructors use a variety of verbal, tactile or imagery cues to guide participants towards the specific benefits of each exercise.
When practiced regularly, Pilates teaches body awareness, good posture and graceful movement. It also improves flexibility, agility and efficiency of motion.
That is why Pilates is beneficial for any lifestyle; It allows people who work behind desks to counteract the effects of gravity and computers on their spine; it also complements many sports disciplines, helps athletes perform better and decrease the risk of injury.
Pilates is based on 6 principles that lead the logic of the repertoire: breathing, concentration, movement control, centering, precision, and flow. Through these, the benefits of Pilates are countless: better posture, increased core stability and strength, improved body/movement control, enhanced movement distribution across the whole spine, and better balance.
