Pilates is a form of exercise similar to yoga, involving a series of movements that build strength, coordination and flexibility. This form of exercise was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected, and that practicing Pilates can go a long way in improving your overall well-being.
At Buddha-Core, we believe that Pilates is for anyone, at any age and with any body type. Through the controlled and progressive movements you can totally reshape your body making you feel and look better than ever.
A closer look at Pilates benefits:
1. Improves balance. With Pilates training, you’ll find that exercises that had once left you feeling unsteady on your feet are much easier to do.
2. Improves core strength: Many Pilates movements require you to hold your torso in place while moving your limbs in different directions. This therefore challenges your body with balance, stability and flexibility. In time, this will strengthen your core and streamline your body.
3. Improves flexibility: Pilates focuses on lengthening and expanding the muscles, allowing them to become longer and leaner.
4. Improves mental health: Breathing performed in yoga and Pilates has been shown to cause a reduction in stress and blood pressure. Being active works to enhance well-being, and foster a better sense of self-confidence, self-control and the ability to take on challenges.
