Developed by Joseph Pilates, the workout focuses on balancing the body using core exercises, flexibility and increased awareness of how the body moves. This increases the efficiency of the graceful way in which the body moves naturally.

What makes Pilates one of the most popular exercise routines is that it is easily adopted by anyone, regardless of age or body mass – athletes do it, actresses, models, senior women and even pregnant women seem to instantly gravitate towards this workout. There have been cases where people in need of physical rehabilitation have also chosen to do Pilates in different stages of their recouperation.

The Pilates workout is safe and can be adapted by anyone and can be as challenging as you want to make it.

The foundation of Pilates exercises is the emphasis on core strength. Core strength is developing the muscles that are deep inside the stomach and back. When core muscles are strong, they work gracefully with other muscles to support the spine and other movements. That means the more you practice the excercises, the more your core strength is developed, and you become more stable and more supple. There are 6 essential principles of Pilates training:  breath, centering, flow, accuracy, control and attention.
