One of the great things about Pilates is that it can be practiced every single day. Even a beginner can jump into a daily practice. You may want to mix up your workouts and take an easier class one day and a more challenging the next day, or chose a class that focuses more on the abdominal series one day and glutes and prone work the next. The beauty of Pilates is that in using your entire body, you have many directions and options with over 50 exercises in our repertoire to choose from.
All you need is a mat or a square of carpet, and you can do a variety of moves to strengthen and tone your entire body, improve balance, flexibility and mobility.
Pilates has been having a bit of time off. Once hailed the core strengthening, body conditioning exercise of the masses, in recent years, it’s been somewhat pushed aside while we all have a love affair with yoga. Pilates is a system of exercises, carried out in a prescribed order, that improve physical strength, flexibility and posture. You only need carry out a few repetitions of each movement because the focus is on the quality of every single movement. Pilates is a low-impact exercise discipline that is fantastic for strengthening muscles, promoting movement control and building endurance.
Our routines effectively targets the upper and lower abdominals, obliques, and back. Many of these Pilates exercises also target and tone the glutes and thighs. Designed to stimulate the body, train the muscles and soothe the mind, Pilates focuses on stretching and strengthening the muscles, and improving overall body alignment.
