Benefits of Pilates
BENEFITS OF PILATES:
AN ENERGIZING MIND & BODY WORKOUT
Pilates gets your mind in harmony with your body. By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment and complete concentration on smooth movement, you become highly aware of how your body feels and how to control its movement. The quality of movement is valued over quantity of repetitions. Correct breathing is essential and helps you perform movements with maximum efficiency and power. Learning to breathe properly can also reduce stress.
DEVELOP STRONG CORE MUSCLES - FLAT ABDOMINAL AND A STRONG BACK
Starting from the principles of Joseph Pilates, Pilates exercises develop a strong muscles core that are the center of the body. The core consists of the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle.
FORM AN EVENLY
CONDITIONED BODY AND PREVENT SPORTS INJURIES
In traditional workouts, weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger. The result is muscular imbalance - a main cause of injury and chronic back pain. Pilates conditions the whole body, even the feet and ankles. No muscle group is over trained or under trained. Your entire musculature is uniformly balanced and conditioned, helping you enjoy daily activities and sports easier and with less chance of injury.
BUILD STRENGTH WITHOUT "BULKING UP" GAIN LONG, LEAN MUSCLES AND FLEXIBILITY
Traditional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles - the type most prone to injury. Pilates strengthens and elongates, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced flexibility and strength is less likely to be injured.
