Clinical Pilates

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise which emphasizes on proper postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance. Pilates promotes flexibility while maintaining strong muscular and postural strength.

It was discovered by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s to optimize physical fitness in people at every level of physical ability. It requires concentration and focus, to control the body through precise movement. Each exercise has a specific placement, rhythm in sync with every breath.

There are various benefits of Pilates, to name a few:

  • Increases flexibility
  • Promote balanced muscular and core strength
  • Improves posture awareness
  • Improved physical coordination and balance
  • Generally, increases muscular strength and toned body

Pilates is designed for everyone, from beginner to advanced. Although flexibility is an inherent part of Pilates, it can be improved with sufficient effort. Pilates can be customized to suit each individual’s flexibility.
