Pilates

Pilates is a popular form of exercise that focuses on muscle control throughout a variety of postures and positions. It often calls upon core muscles that are essential to balance, bone support and overall body fitness. Pilates may also focus on control of breath and aim to tone and strengthen muscles.

Pilates was founded in the early 20th century after a German named Joseph Pilates. It was designed based on a combination of traditional yoga and aerobics, and it focuses on principles of:

  • Control - There should be no sloppy or uncontrolled movements in Pilates, and this first principle could be considered the basis of Pilates as a form of exercise and rehabilitation.
  • Breathing - Correct breathing is integral to many Pilates practices, which focuses on deep inhaling and exhaling to help expel gases and charge cells with oxygen. Pilates attempts to co-ordinate movements with breathing practices.
  • Core Muscles - Balance, power and stability in the body come from a group of large core muscles, and Pilates focuses on increasing the strength of these muscles. This can be especially useful if you are undertaking Pilates for rehabilitation purposes.
  • Concentration - Pilates takes more than just muscle control. It also requires sustained focus to the task at hand, and this too has been cited as particularly useful by the medical community.
