Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. Pilates exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment.
There are many reports on the health benefits of pilates. Practitioners say regular pilates practice can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension. For athletes and dancers, pilates can complement their training by developing whole body strength and flexibility, and help reduce the risk of injury.
