Pilates is known for helping people to develop both strength and flexibility.
Pilates stretches includes exercises that increase the flexibility of the back, front body, side body, hamstrings and hips.

2Core Strength

Core strength is the balanced development of the deep and superficial muscles that stabilize, align and move the truck of the body, especially the abdominals and muscles of the back.

3Body Fitness

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. while Pilates training focuces on core strength it trains the body as an intregrated whole.

A Mind-Body Workout That Strengthens Your Whole Body

Another one of the benefits of Pilates is that it engages the mind and enhances body awareness. Like yoga, tai chi, and Asian martial arts, Pilates is not just a workout for your body. Joseph H. Pilates studied yoga, martial arts, and other ancient mind-body activities and included a strong philosophical foundation into the practice of Pilates.
Pilates not only helps tone your body, but your mind and spirit as well. The smooth, precise and flowing movements of Pilates are designed to make you more mindful of your body.
Breath movement is also emphasized to put you in touch with how breath moves through your body.
Pilates has been demonstrated to reduce stress, anxiety, and helps lift depression. The mind-body connection is fundamental to the study and practice of pilates.

It is important to remember that because Pilates exercises consist of slow, controlled movements with no impact on joints, exercises can be tailored to suit rehab patients, pre-and post-natal clients as well as athletes.
Appropriate Pilates programmes can also be tailored for special population groups including post-rehab patients, wheelchair-bound patients, patients with Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoporosis and Fibromyagia.
