Pilates (Pi-lart-ees) is a system of exercise that focuses on conditioning your core abdominal and back muscles, so improving overall posture, muscle tone and flexibility. It does this by focusing the mind and body around its eight principles: concentration, centring, breathing, isolation, routine, precision, control and flowing movements.
Pilates was developed in the early nineteen hundreds for use by dancers and athletes. However, thanks to the support of current research, it is now being used not only as a excellent form of non-impact exercise and stability training, but also as a very effective form of rehabilitation for low back pain and sports injuries. Providing therapists with a clinical and user friendly tool for retraining correct activation of the core muscles.
