What Pilates Is 

Pilates is a full-body workout but a low-impact exercise boosting core strength, mobility, and flexibility, as well as lengthening and toning your frame. In developing a Pilates practice, you focus on breathwork, concentration, precision, flow, centering, and control in order to feel strong, conditioned, and flexible in both mind and body.

What Pilates Looks Like 

Pilates workouts typically emphasize core strength, stability, posture, precision, and breath control and can include Pilates equipment to improve flexibility and range of motion. Pilates exercises often include resistance training either through body weight or Pilates equipment to build muscular strength, stability, and endurance.

The Benefits of Pilates

Joseph Pilates developed Pilates as a system of movement and therapeutic exercise over a span of sixty years. Pilates can do all of the following:

  • Increase your mind and body connection
  • Build strength, balance, mobility, and stability
  • Tone muscles and balance muscular force at the joint level
  • Stimulate circulation by facilitating proper musculoskeletal alignment 
  • Promote new neuromuscular patterns, body awareness, and precise coordination
  • Enhance muscular control, stabilize your spine, and improve posture and lung capacity

All of these benefits combined can help to prevent future re-injury and reduce or even, in some cases, alleviate chronic pain altogether. That is the power of Pilates.
