There are many components to consider when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A good exercise routine along with other healthy habits can promote optimal health. Pilates is a form of exercise that can payoff in a big way with the proper instructions. Pilates promotes physical harmony and balance for people of all ages and physical condition while providing a refreshing and energizing workout.
Here are some of the benefits of Pilates:
Reduce Stress and Tension: Pilates relieves tension built up in the muscles through gentle stretching and gradual conditioning. When physical demands are met with steady breathing and mindfulness the nervous system responds by maintaining activation while keeping an underlying sense of calm. This response lets us face our day-to-day stress with clarity and respond to it without getting overwhelmed.
Injury Prevention: Pilates is a workout that incorporates the whole body. Repetitive exercise of the same muscle groups can lead to muscular imbalances which in turn can cause pain. With Pilates no muscle group is over trained or under trained. Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you better enjoy daily activities. Sports are played with greater ease, better performance and less chance of injury. This is why so many professional sports teams and elite athletes now use Pilates as a critical part of their training regimen.
Good for even begginners: Pilates is very versatile and people of all fitness levels can do it. If you are a beginner and just getting into a healthy lifestyle, a private Pilates session with an experienced instructor can help you right away. All of the exercises and poses involved in Pilates can be easily modified depending on your physical condition.
Improved Strength/ Flexibility: Pilates is composed of different movements and stretches that are ideal for improving posture, flexibility, and strength. Pilates is a gentle, yet challenging way to obtain a stronger core. Improving strength and flexibility can make day-to-day tasks easier to accomplish and provide a better balance between body and mind.
