Pilates (pronounced Pi-lah-tees) is an exercise system of mind-body conditioning created from the principles of Joseph Pilates. It teaches body awareness, develops good posture, improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion.
     Pilates focuses on the deep postural muscles, including the pelvic floor (kegel muscles), all of the abdominal muscles and deep spine stabilizers. These deep postural muscles are also referred to as the core.
     Improving core muscle control, coordination, flexibility and strength will create a balance within the body. Combined with developing proper techniques, the body will learn to move in a safer, more efficient pattern of motion. The benefits of a body trained for core strength and flexibility are many. It provides an optimal foundation for sports training and performance, good posture and overall well-being. Pilates is also an excellent basis for dealing with injury recovery and physical rehabilitation. Overall Pilates teaches muscular balance supported by core strength, and that ability will translate to benefits into many areas of life.
