What is Pilates, you ask?
Pilates is a program of exercises, developed by Joseph Pilates, which are taught on specialized, spring-loaded equipment and focus on mindful, efficient movement. Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath, body alignment, and the ability to initiate movement from the core muscles. The exercises are low-impact and emphasize improved segmental spinal mobility, allowing athletes to improve their performance and allowing those with injuries to learn to move with greater ease and improved neuromuscular patterns.
