Benefits of Pilates

The practice of Pilates is widely known to carve a rock-solid core but it’s benefits don’t stop there!  Pilates will also help heal, strengthen and relax your body. Here are some rewards you can expect to reap from a Pilates plan:

Less Incidents of Back Pain, Better Posture, Improved Flexibility, Lowered Stress Levels, Toned Bottom and Thighs, Toned Arms and Shoulder Area, Flatter Stomach and Trimmer Waist, Fewer Headaches, Better Balance Between Strength and Suppleness, Greater Muscle Tone, Greater Joint Mobility, Better Co-ordination, Fewer Injuries, Greater Body Awareness.

  • Concentration

    Concentration promotes the mind-body connection. As you focus and become mindful of each body movement, Pilates states you will receive optimum physical value from each movement as well as enhance your body awareness.

  • Centering

    During your Pilates workout, you should consciously bring your focus to the center of your body. As you focus within, this Pilates principle suggests you will bring calm to both your body and spirit. Pilates called the center of your torso the “powerhouse,” from which all energy for exercise is derived.

  • Control

    Pilates’ method is based on mindfulness, including proper, safe and complete muscle control. With proper control, you utilize the exact and correct form, leaving no part of your body unattended. In your mindful awareness, you direct each and every movement.

  • Precision

    According to Pilates’ precision principle, executing one exercise with deliberate exactitude is more important than completing more repetitions with sloppier form. For this reason, good Pilates instructors provide detailed instructions to their students on all Pilates movements.

  • Breathing

    Deep, controlled, diaphragmatic breathing activates blood circulation and awakens cells and muscles. Pilates recommended visualizing the lungs as bellows as you bring air in to the fullest and release it in the same manner. He wrote that breathing is the most integral part of exercise, and even if one follows no other recommendation, learning to breathe correctly is the most important thing.

  • Alignment

    From head to toes, the Pilates method stresses good posture and awareness of the placement of all parts of your body. During your Pilates workout, it is important to be aware of the position of your head, neck, spine and pelvis to ensure proper breathing and technique.

  • Flow

    Pilates routines are completed through a gentle flow. Grace, ease and fluidity are the intention Joseph Pilates applied to all exercise. Continuous, smooth, and elegant movement as you transition from one pose to another will bring strength and stamina according to this principle.

  • Integration

    Breath, control, mindfulness, centering, alignment, and precision unite as the many groups of muscles work together to support and govern movement. Practicing each of the above principles achieves Pilates’ goal of an integrated mind-body workout.
