Pilates is system of exercises using special apparatus, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. Similar to yoga because of the breathing techniques, however it emphasizes your body’s core the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh and glutes. Pilates develops much of what exercisers need strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture. This discipline emphasizes correct form instead of going for the burn. Each apparatus was designed to help accelerate the process of stretching, strengthening, body alignment and increased core strength.

The moves require you to engage virtually your whole body, although at times you may try to strengthen one muscle while stretching another. The moves take lots of concentration; you can’t simply go through the motions like you can on gym equipment. And then, for every move you think you’ve mastered, Pilates has another version that’s a little different and a little harder. It is also known to be beneficial for correcting scoliosis, improving posture, and rehabilitating the body from injuries.
