Pilates is a series of exercises that can be done on the floor or on a variety of specially designed equipment. The result is a strong, yet flexible, well-toned body, without muscle bulk.
Pilates can benefit anyone, from the super-fit athlete to the pregnant woman, and everyone in between; even those with injuries or chronic conditions. Many physicians, physical therapists and chiropractors incorporate Pilates technique into their rehabilitation programs. Joseph H. Pilates believed that fewer, more precise, concentrated movements would elongate and balance the muscles; and turn the abdominals, lower back and hips into the body’s power centre.
