Pilates is a form of exercise that has been praised worldwide for many, many years. In previous blogs, the origins of and the different injuries Pilates is used to treat have been discussed but it is also important to highlight the benefits of Pilates and what it can provide to individuals.
Pilates exercises are designed to give an individual the opportunity to develop optimal strength, flexibility and endurance using movements that aren’t stressful on the joints and won’t build bulk. Above all, the benefits offered by Pilates go far beyond just core strength and flexibility. People who take classes on a regular basis claim that they experience increased energy levels. Also, an increased awareness of their body as a whole and a boost in both self-confidence and mood.
