A low impact exercise involving a series of positions or movements carried out on a mat,
not un-like Yoga. - It doesn't matter if you are a total beginner or an impover as the skill level of each movement can be adapted to suit everyones' abiliities.
Regular Pilates increases your core strength, activating those deep postural muscles we
so often neglect. The strengthening of these muscles improves the stability of your back thus
lessening the chances of injuries to your back.
PRINCIPLES OF PILATES
BREATHING – Wide and full into the ribcage (lateral thoracic breathing) Practice makes perfect.
CONCENTRATION – Concentration is required to find the correct posture, movements and breathing technique.
CONTROL – Pilates is performed slowly and gracefully and with time can be a very flowing form of exercise. Over time, performed correctly, it can iron out little niggles and postural inbalances.
FLOWING MOVEMENT – Once perfected, the art of Pilates is graceful with flow of breath – nothing jerky nor forced.
ROUTINE – Once all the above is put into practice over time the movement will become familiar and everything with flow with the desired grace and precision.
PRECISION - As mentioned above once routine has been achieved, all moves should be made with precision, i.e. as perfectly as possible, and then you will most definitely see the benefits.
