UNLIKE YOGA, WHICH FOCUSES MAINLY ON IMPROVING FLEXIBILITY, PILATES AIMS TO RELAX THE MUSCLES AND STRENGTHEN THEM FOR GREATER CORE STABILITY.
It’s a low-impact flowing exercise, aiding better posture and a greater range of motion. It also helps you feel the physical connection between the things you do in daily life and their after-effects.
Maybe you’re on your feet all day, lifting and carrying, or perhaps the opposite? Sat stationary at a desk with your feet and hips misaligned. Clinical pilates can help iron out those knotted muscles and stretch areas that you weren’t even aware were tight that could be contributing to an injury you just can’t shift.
Apparatus used can also help people with lower back pain thanks to support-assisted exercises that you might not have been able to do alone.
