Joseph Pilates created the Pilates method for rehabilitation purposes. Today many people who start Pilates are recovering from injury, however it's equally as beneficial for anyone to help enhance athletic performance, prevent injury and move better in daily life.
Pilates is a series of controlled movements. Focusing on the deep muscles of the torso (abdomen, pelvis, scapula and spine), it promotes better posture and balance. It builds core strength and stability while restoring the natural curves of the spine, bringing awareness of how your body works and moves.
