Build Core Strength
Almost every single movement in Pilates is designed to utilise your core abdominal muscles. Having a solid core is essential to bring your spine into a neutral position. The better alignment in your back will help prevent back pain, relieve stress, and assist in breathing.
With Great Strength Comes Great Flexibility
Similarly to Yoga, Pilates helps build strength while increasing flexibility. Flexibility is often sacrificed in strength-building workouts, but in Pilates, you get the best of both worlds. Pilates movements will improve elasticity in your muscles and increase the mobility of your joints, all while making you stronger. This brings a healthy overall balance to your body which has some unexpected benefits.
Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation
In Pilates, we work to lengthen strong, short muscles and build long, weak muscles. Obtaining better balance in the body helps a great deal in the prevention of injuries in your day-to-day life. Pilates can be tailored to your specific injury by utilizing many of the available modifications. This allows you to really focus on problem areas and slowly work to regain strength and flexibility in the affected areas.
Low Impact & Challenging
Unlike most conventional workouts Pilates is completely safe for the body. Because most movements are performed lying down or sitting, it ends up being much more gentle on your muscles and joints. However, it can still be extremely challenging because it can target specific muscles that we do not often use throughout the course of our daily lives.
