Principles of the method
Invented by Joseph Pilates, the method refers to the controlled movements of the body and mind. The master encourages his students to focus on the starting point of all movement: the « powerhouse », the center of strength of the body.
BREATHING – specific, lateral thoracic, soothing.
FOCUS – on the movement and its execution.
THE CENTER – all movements start from the center, the powerhouse.
CONTROL – of the movement through the associated breathing.
FLUIDITY – slow movements that let our body express itself.
PRECISION – quality of execution of the movement, not quantity.
Through regular breathing, Pilates teaches the muscles to work in harmony from a strong center.
Benefits of Pilates
Through a series of varied, non-repetitive exercises, one learns to activate weak muscles and relax tight muscles in order to balance the musculature.
The body quickly becomes leaner, stronger and harmonized. The method is practiced on the floor (with or without accessories) or on specialized equipment (reformer, cadillac, chair).
Pilates can be practiced as a sport on its own, as a complement to another physical activity or to accompany a rehabilitation.
The exercises are adapted according to the level, the needs of each person and the possible pathologies.
Its regular practice improves posture, back pain disappears, the belly becomes firmer, the body becomes strong and flexible.
The gestures of the sportsmen become more effective, because better controlled and the risks of injury or muscular imbalance decrease.
