Pilates can strengthen the body in an even way, it focuses on the body’s core strength which will improve general fitness and well being.
Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed physical & mental health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing, and Greco-Roman wrestling. In the 1920s Joseph Pilates immigrated to the US and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method, which he called “Contrology”.
Pilates focuses on breathing, centering, control, precision, movement. It is about your body, mat work, repetitive low impact exercises. It involves learning techniques.
