What is Pilates

The Pilates Method coordinates breath work with exercises performed on a mat, small equipment, and spring-based apparatus to help increase strength and flexibility, as well as re-pattern the neuromuscular system for optimal health. Equipment-based spring tension from the spring based apparatus, like, the reformer, trains your muscles to work like a spring – building a deeper connection through your center as you achieve a balance between flexibility and strength. Pilates has eight basic principles or fundamentals: Control, Concentration, Centering, Precision, Breath, Alignment, Flow, and Integration. You need all of these things to help you execute exercises correctly.
