PILATES

What is Pilates? Pilates Exercise was developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates and is a method of exercise focused to improve both strength and flexibility. Pilates has a massive following world-wide and is still increasing in popularity.

Pilates Exercise Aims.

Pilates is an exercise form emphasizing body alignment and correct breathing while focusing on the lower and deeper abdominals on the one hand and the mid-back and part of the shoulder muscles on the other. The goal of Pilates is to provide a greater understanding of postural alignment during movement of the human body in the three dimensional planes. This is achieved by controlled movements, proper biomechanics and flow of movement in a variety of positions (standing, prone, side-laying, supine, sitting & kneeling ).

Through Pilates, people are instructed in how to move according to the body's natural harmony and alignment - moving in a way that the body is designed to move. Joseph Pilates emphasized that the way the body is used in the modern world (with people sitting all day, engaging in repetitive tasks) cannot remain healthy, and his Pilates exercises were designed to address this problem.
