By emphasizing on proper breathing, correct spinal, pelvic alignment, and concentrating on smooth, flowing movement Pilates acutely tunes you with your body. With this physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion.
Pilates works out on the whole body, even the ankles and feet. Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or sitting positions while some have light weight bearing. Pilates is extremely safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. It’s also an extremely flexible exercise system. Modifications to the exercises allow for a range of difficulty ranging from beginning to advanced.
