Benefits of Pilates
Pilates is an exercise system that is focused on building strength without bulk, improving flexibility and agility, and helping to prevent injury. Joseph H. Pilates, who was a physical trainer and founder of Pilates, developed the system in the 1920s. It involves a series of controlled movements that engage both your body and mind.
Pilates utilises specifically designed exercise apparatus and is supervised by highly trained teachers. It was initially created for rehabilitation, but was later adopted by dancers and athletes and is now utilized by millions. The primary focus is on awareness of the spine, proper breathing, core strength and flexibility.
The outcome of Pilates training is a balanced body that is strong and supple, flat stomach, balanced legs, and a strong back.
