What is Pilates?
It is based on six principles:
All movement originates in the center. In Pilates, the center refers to the deep musculature of the pelvis, abdomen and spine.
The quality of movement depends on control. Movements should always be performed with control to avoid injury and achieve optimal results.
One goal of Pilates is to connect mind and body and concentration is vital to attain this connection. With each movement, concentrate and focus on all the details and the body as a whole.
Conscious breathing supports the movement and the mind-body connection. Deep inhalation and exhalation helps bring oxygen to the muscles and remove waste products.
6. Flowing Movement
