What Is Pilates?
Pilates is a body conditioning exercise program that targets the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine to improve overall central core stability and posture.
The mind and body are brought together to achieve these aims through 8 principles.
With regular practice, Pilates positively changes the body.
How Did Pilates Start?
Pilates was developed by a gymnast, Joseph Pilates, as an exercise program for injured dancers and soldiers, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected.
What Is The Difference Between Yoga And Pilates?
Both Yoga and Pilates have many similarities and benefits in that they both connect the mind and body and help to improve flexibility, strength, control and endurance.
Yoga comes in various different forms and has a more spiritual basis combining meditation with movement. Pilates has a greater focus on improving core strength, pelvic and scapular stability and correcting muscle imbalances in the body.
Pilates has greater benefit in the rehabilitation of injury and can be modified by an instructor who is knowledgeable about the body. Physiotherapists who teach pilates are sure to have an in depth knowledge on how the body should move correctly thus helping to manage and prevent pain and injury.
Why Have A Professional Pilates Instructor?
Having a professional Pilates instructor ensures you learn to do the movements properly to avoid getting injured, and means you will get much more out of it. The instructor can help correct your movements when necessary, often we just don't realise what we can improve on specifically, or maybe we know what we need to improve but just don't know how.
A great instructor will ensure you receive all the training and support you need to get the most out of your Pilates.
