Pilates-Based exercise is sweeping the nation! It dramatically improves strength, flexibility, posture and coordination. The benefits that can be derived from this exercise include improved spinal flexibility, positive change to distorted muscle patterns, improvement in range of motion as well as posture. It is geared toward strengthening the whole body including the intrinsic muscles that are the little muscles you do not see. Specifically, Pilates-Based exercise technique is a set of principles that is demonstrated through corrective exercises and the utilization of specialized equipment that works the whole body. The technique focuses on balance and the coordination of the upper and lower musculature with the body as center. Each exercise session builds upon the methods learned from the previous session. The Method can be carried into your every day activities.
