Every Movement has a purpose 

Every movement in Pilates has a purpose. Every instruction is vitally important to success.

To leave out any detail is to forsake the intrinsic value of the exercise.

Your focus is to do one precise and perfect movement, rather than many half-hearted ones.

Eventually, your precision becomes second nature and carries over into your everyday life as grace and economy of motion.

Postural alignment and muscular balance

Pilates heightens body awareness, improves balance and symmetry and develops functional and robust posture. It strengthens correct muscle activation and trains for accurate distribution of weight placement, both necessary for gaining a high degree of physical coordination.

Muscle conditioning, control, and strength

Pilates helps to identify areas of weakness that may inhibit optimum form. Unlike strength training with weights, Pilates produces long, lean muscles allowing a fuller range of motion, increasing functional strength. Pilates strengthens muscles that play a vital role in performing particular movements. Back muscles are developed evenly, and the spine is elongated and aligned for better stability.

Flexibility and control

 Pilates improves balance, agility, and stability throughout the body to create a proper foundation. Therefore, increasing mobility and suppleness, a strength regime that doesn’t come at the cost of flexibility, is necessary.
