WHAT IS PILATES
Pilates develops every aspect of physical fitness: strength, flexibility, coordination, speed, agility, and endurance, and it does so in a safe and efficient manner. Pilates is for everyone--the teenager and the elderly, the elite athlete and the person who has never exercised in their life. Pilates teaches correct posture and alignment and therefore there is less stress on the joints during the workouts itself. Pilates builds core strength and strengthens the stabilizing muscles of the spine, which is imperative to back health. Pilates will heighten your body awareness and will teach you proper breathing and its related physical and psychological benefits. The popularity of Pilates lies in its far-reaching diverse benefits.
"Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit." -Joseph Pilates
