Have you heard of Pilates but don't know how it can help you?
The benefits of Pilates are endless but here are just a few:
Pilates focuses on alignment, so it's a great way to improve your posture which in turn can help prevent/relieve back pain and injuries.
Improves flexibility as the exercises elongate and strengthen the muscles, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility.
Improved concentration, the concentration required in a Pilates class can give you a mental break from the world outside, leaving you feeling revitalised, refreshed and focused.
Reduced stress levels as Pilates forces you to move slowly and move with intention. This brings your awareness to your body as it moves and how it feels in the moment. Practising mindful movement can make you more present, which can help you manage stress more effectively.
Pilates helps to improve your co-ordination and balance by correcting imbalances. Imbalances are often the result of the overdeveloped muscles compensating for weak and/or tight muscles that limit the range of your joints and/or limbs. So, if your balance is off, it could be that you have muscle imbalances.
