What does it mean exactly?
Well, they are much more than the latest fitness most used words – they are keys to a healthier lifestyle through mindful movement and Pilates, and that is why it grows in popularity more and more.
Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. It is a safe, sensible exercise system that will help you look and feel your very best.
It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates also improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion.
It can even help alleviate back pain.
Pilates can really make a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body.
By emphasizing proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, you become acutely in tune with your body.
Pilates exercises develop a strong “core,” or center of the body. The core consists of the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle. More conventional or traditional workouts are weight bearing and tend to build short, bulky muscles – the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility.
A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.
Create an evenly conditioned body, improve sports performance, and prevent injuries. In the same vein, a lot of these same conventional workouts tend to work the same muscles.
This leads weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger.
The result is muscular imbalance – a primary cause of injury and chronic back pain. Pilates conditions the whole body, even the ankles and feet. No muscle group is over trained or under trained.
Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you enjoy daily activities and sports with greater ease, better performance and less chance of injury. That’s why so many professional sports teams and elite athletes now use Pilates as a critical part of their training regimen. Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once in smooth, continuous movements.
By developing proper technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns of motion – invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, good posture and optimal health. It’s gentle…
Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or sitting positions, and most are low impact and partially weight bearing. Pilates is so safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. But it’s also challenging… Pilates is also an extremely flexible exercise system.
