Pilates A Unique Form Of Exercise

9:25 AM Posted by Lilian

Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.

Pilates is one of the most popular exercise systems worldwide. It works so well for a wide range of people like athletes, dancers, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people who at various stages of physical rehabilitation.

The top benefits that you can get for doing Pilates exercise which people report are that they become stronger, longer, leaner, and more able to do anything with grace and ease.

There are six Pilates principles, they are Centering, Control, Flow, Breath, Precision, and Concentration:

These six Pilates principles are essential ingredients in a high quality Pilates workout. The Pilates method has always emphasized quality over quantity, and you will find that, unlike many systems of exercise, Pilates exercises do not include a lot of repetitions for each move. Instead, doing each exercise fully, with precision, yields significant results in a shorter time than one would ever imagine.

Core strength and torso stability, along with the six Pilates principles, set the Pilates method apart from many other types of exercise. Weight lifting, for example, can put a lot of attention on arm or leg strength without attending much to the fact that those parts are connected to the rest of the body! Even running or swimming can seem like all arms and legs, with either a floppy or overly tense core. Ultimately those who really succeed at their sport learn to use their core muscles, but in Pilates this integrative approach is learned from the beginning.
