The Pilates Method is a system of physical fitness designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s. Pilates was a true pioneer in the field of complete body fitness. The exercises emphasize controlled movement with correct form and will engage the mind as well as the body. Some of the benefits of Pilates include longer, leaner muscles; improved coordination and balance; increased flexibility and strength; better posture; increased circulation, and an overall feeling of physical and mental well-being.
Core Strength is the foundation of Pilates exercise. The basic idea is to strengthen the core muscles –deep abdominals, gluteals and back. If this “powerhouse” is strong, then the rest of the body is supported and free to move fully and gracefully without unnecessary tension.
