GET TO KNOW PILATES
The Pilates Method of body conditioning was first conceived by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s; later, in the 1940s, it caught on with dancers and people in the performing arts. As it was embraced and popularized with the mainstream public, its emphasis on the mind-body connection awakened a renewed interest in a more deliberate and intentional movement practice amongst people from all walks of life.
There are over 500 different exercises described in the Pilates Method, performed either on a mat or on special equipment using springs and or gravity for resistance. The core concept of Pilates is strengthening of the "Powerhouse" — the central muscle groups engirdling the abdomen, back, and pelvis.
So put quite simply, Pilates is a form of exercise that's for everyone — men and women, athletes, celebrities and everyday people, young or old, fit or flabby. Like many other kinds of exercise, Pilates increases metabolism, promotes respiratory and circulatory function, and improves bone density and muscle tone. And like Yoga and martial arts, it can help you to "get centered" and calm your nerves.
Unlike many other forms of exercise, however, Pilates balances out muscular asymmetries, streamlines your silhouette, and improves your balance, coordination, and breath control. Pilates does all of this because the exercises work to simultaneously develop your muscular flexibility and your strength. The exercises also help to awaken a new body awareness. You will have a greater understanding of your body- your prime real estate and the greatest vessel you will ever truly own.
