Is Pilates Right for You? 


Pilates is an exercise that has become popular in the last 20 years and continues to remain strong. Pilates is often confused with yoga, but it is actually a modern activity, unlike yoga which has been practiced for over 1500 years.  


Pilates began in the 1920's when Joseph Pilates developed a series of moves to aid in the rehabilitation of WWI soldiers. It was also developed for dancers, Martha Graham and George Balanchine. The basic tenets Joseph Pilates set down are still in use today with very few modifications.  


This exercise system is designed to improve flexibility, strength and body awareness while avoiding adding bulk to your body. Pilates can be done using specially designed apparatus to achieve the desired goal or it may be achieved using specific moves on a mat. Pilates is based on resistance and is not cardio, though the heart rate can become elevated during the workout. 


Pilates works the core muscles: spine, abdomen, pelvis and hips. The focus during a workout is to concentrate on these core muscles along with breathing. The object is the quality of the moves, not the quantity. 


Benefits Of Pilates 

In addition to helping participants strengthen their core, Pilates offers a wide range of benefits. 


  • Weight management. Losing weight involves burning more calories than you take in. Pilates can help you burn more calories during the day and aid with your weight loss routine. 
  • Improve strength and flexibility. 
  • Low-impact so it’s easier on the joints.
