Pilates is a type of exercise that emphasises the development of the body’s strength, flexibility, and control through a series of carefully timed movements. It was created by German physical trainer Joseph Pilates at the beginning of the 20th century, and it has since gained popularity all over the world.
In a Pilates class participants typically use specialized equipment such as a reformer Cadillac or chair as well as mat-based exercises. The exercises themselves are designed to target specific muscle groups with an emphasis on proper alignment and breathing techniques.
During a Pilates session the instructor will guide participants through a series of movements and poses often with a focus on core strength and stability. The exercises can be tailored to suit individual fitness levels and abilities making Pilates a suitable form of exercise for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Pilates is a low-impact exercise method that can help with posture, balance, flexibility, and overall fitness. It is frequently used in conjunction with other forms of exercise or as a way to recover from injuries.
