WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates is similar to yoga but emphasizes your body’s core (including the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, and glutes). Because it primarily targets your core, Pilates exercise gives you just what your body needs — strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture — with a much lower chance of injury than with many other forms of exercise! This discipline emphasizes correct form over simply going for “the burn.” With so many exercise variations and progressions, you may have a difficult time getting bored with Pilates! Pilates moves require you to engage virtually your whole body. At times, you may try to strengthen one muscle while stretching another. These moves require a great deal of concentration; therefore you can’t simply go through the motions like you can on most gym equipment. And then: for every move you think you’ve mastered, Pilates has another version that will be a bit different and a bit more difficult.
