Pilates is a form of conditioning in the development of strong core muscles for all fitness levels and abilites. When all muscular systems work in a timely and coordinated fashion,participants can achieve large gains in strength,skill,cooridnation,and biomechanical efficiency. Pilates helps increase joint stability and strengthens the deep core muscle which helps to prevent injuries and guides participants to improved performance.
Pilates develops kinesthetic awareness of the body as it balances muscles around a joint. Pilates focuses on stabilizing the lumbo-pelvic region and that improved core stability gained through pilates training will carry over to whatever your sport or high activity endeavor.
Tremendous advancements in knowledge of anatomy and the science of movement have been made since pilates exerscise was first created. The Stott Pilates method is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method that was pionered by the late Joseph Pilates and was was co- developed by Moira and Lindsay Merrithew along with a team of fitness professionals,incorporating modern exercise principals to create a safe and highly effective approach to pilates.
