Pilates

“You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions.” (Josef Pilates)

margaryta-pilatesPilates is an exercise method developed over 70 years ago by Josef Hubertus Pilates.  Josef Pilates was stricken with many illnesses as a child growing up in Germany. He began research on how to condition the body. He studied various forms of exercise ranging from yoga to Roman wrestling. As a teenager he was able to pose for anatomical charts. He overcame his sickly childhood and became an athlete; excelling in gymnastics, body building, skiing, and diving. Ultimately, he dedicated his life to creating a method of exercise encompassing both mental and physical fitness.

The benefits of Pilates include increased flexibility and core strength. Combined with deep, coordinated breathing this method is designed to stretch and strengthen muscles without putting stress on joints and ligaments. Beyond its overall conditioning benefits, Pilates is also adaptable for the rehabilitation of injury. The benefits are many including: an increase in energy, relief of pain due to tight muscles or stress, enhanced posture and bio mechanical function and an enhanced sense of well-being. Overall, Pilates involves deep, controlled breathing, mind control to connect the mind and body, inducing an inner calm. Pilates is based on the belief that body and the breath are ultimately connected with the mind. The practice of Pilates with slow deep breathing and intention to relax the nervous system can be beneficial in decreasing the symptoms of allergies and helpful in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Pilates has been shown in number of medical studies to be effective in helping control blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, metabolism, brain waves, and many other body functions.
