The Power of Pilates

Pilates Principles

Pilates is based on a set of principles, which exercise the whole body through a range of mat exercises. Core strength is at the foundation. By combining the coordination of deep postural and stability muscles, breathing, and arm and leg movements with postural correction and flexibility, Pilates works the entire body. Just a little practice and you’ll see the positive impact.

Principles:

  • Centering
  • Concentration
  • Control
  • Precision
  • Breath
  • Flow
