Pilates, developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s, is a full-body method of exercise that is designed to strengthen, stretch, and stabilize. It uses both your own body, as well as specialized props and equipment to most effectively improve strength and flexibility. Originally called Contrology by Joseph Pilates, Pilates improves and maintains proper body alignment through a focus on control and precision of movements, increasing body awareness in the process.
Pilates classes emphasis the lengthening of the body and keeping spinal alignment, accompanied with focused breathing patterns, in order to build strength and flexibility. Much attention is placed on increasing core strength, known in Pilates as your powerhouse, which is especially beneficial for preventing or alleviating back and neck pain. Pilates is used not only as a regular fitness workout, but also for physical rehabilitation, helping individuals improve their movements and range of motion needed for activities of daily living. The benefits of Pilates are numerous, from increased lung capacity, improved pelvic floor function, and a stronger mind-body connection, to alleviated joint pain and improved bone density.
