5 REALLY, REALLY AMAZING REASONS YOU SHOULD PRACTICE PILATES

Developed in the early 1900s, Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise that uses simple yet effective moves that focus on flexibility and strength through short repetitive movements.

Pilates is great for people of all fitness levels, from athletes to first-timers and even those rehabilitating from injuries.

It’s a very flexible experience (pun intended).

  1. Increased Energy.
    The more you move, the more oomph you’ll have. Pilates gets your blood and breath flowing and sparks all the muscles in your bod. And after practice, you’ll feel an endorphin rush!
  2. Brain-Bod Awareness.
    During Pilates, you move with complete attention and intention. You centre your mind and focus on your breath, spine, and core. Control and flow. The practice releases tension, uniting your brain and bod.
  3. Prevent Injury.
    A strong, balanced bod is more bulletproof. And Pilates naturally brings balance to your bod. It strengthens weak links and increases flexibility. Plus, the increased awareness helps you from bumping into stuff.
  4. Relieve Stress.
    We store anxiety and stress in our bods, which turns into slouching, clenched jaws, tight hips, muscle spasms, and high blood pressure. Pilates relaxes and gives you control over your emotional baggage.
  5. Me Time.
    Pilates is also an invigorating escape from the ho-hum routine of life. During your practice, you give yourself an important dose of “me time” to put aside all of your cares and worries.
