BENEFITS OF PILATES

If practiced regularly, Pilates brings multiple benefits, such as:

 

  • Improvement in general physical well-being, with gains in strength, endurance and flexibility

  • Optimisation of posture via a focus on the body's core and the associated abdominal muscles: one of the basic goals is to strengthen the large muscles that stabilise the spine

  • Instilling muscle memory for injury-protective positioning during intense isometric and isotonic exercise

  • Targeted relaxation to help prevent or relieve muscular tension and spasm

  • Mental relaxation and stress-relief linked to the breathing control practiced during the exercises

  • Zero-impact rehabilitation after injury or surgery

WHO CAN BENEFIT ?

The exercises are appropriate for all ages and adaptable to every individual

 

The technique is based on 6 principles that need to be front-of-mind for all practitioners:

  • Centering

  • Concentration

  • Control

  • Precision

  • Flow 

  • Breath

The aim of each session is a holistic sequence of exercises that targets all muscle groups, often in an order that “surprises” the muscles and alternately targets agonist/antagonist groups

Working simultaneously on strength, flexibility, balance and endurance (with the CardioTramp Rebounder and the JumpBoard)

Movements are carried out with mindfulness of control and precision, and critically, no hard impacts

Advanced practitioners exhibit a unique total-body coordination and choreography

Sessions are designed to be free of pain and muscular overload
