Pilates consists of low impact flexibility, muscular strength and endurance exercises. It emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance.
Pilates offers diverse health benefits, such as improved flexibility, increased muscle strength, balanced muscle tone, and enhanced control of back and limbs. It also promotes spinal stabilization, posture improvement, injury prevention, coordination, and balance. Additionally, Pilates aids in relaxation, rehabilitation, and boosts lung capacity and circulation through focused breathing techniques.
Suitable for all fitness levels, Pilates can be practiced with or without equipment, with noticeable postural improvements achievable within 10 to 20 sessions when practiced at least two to three times per week.
