Pilates is a 20th century system of exercises designed by Joseph Pilates. It works to improve flexibility, build strength, and develop control and endurance. It is low-impact and effective in improving and balancing muscle tone while improving posture and bone density. Pilates emphasizes alignment, breathing, and core strength while improving coordination and balance.
It benefits most people and is perfect for those with lower back pain or poor posture. It will develop the muscles that support the spine and can also help improve chronic pain. Pilates is ideal for anyone who needs to strengthen their back muscles or stabilize major muscle groups – meaning anyone from athletes to those who work at a desk all day will benefit from Pilates.
Pilates is excellent both for recovery and injury prevention. It can help prevent osteoporosis, disc injuries, and other joint injuries that may arise from muscle imbalances.
