Pilates is the complete co-ordination of body, mind and spirit. It was originally developed by Joseph Pilates.
Joseph Pilates advocated that Pilates:
- Develops the body uniformly
- Corrects wrong posture
- Restores physical vitality
- Invigorates the mind
- Elevates the spirit
- Gives you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work
- Works on gaining mastery of your mind over the complete control of your body.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is also referred to “as the art and science of human movement.
Pilates involves mastery of mind, control, concentration, persistence, patience,breath, centering, precision, flexibility, flow of movement, posture and relaxation.
Today, many people from all walks of life, with varying health conditions do Pilates. Pilates draws upon research and findings in physiotherapy, kinesiology, anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and ideas from movement therapies. It caters, therefore, for all abilities and levels and works with the individual and their current level and capabilities. Pilates is about understanding the body and increasing awareness of one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. It concentrates upon working in a neutral spine, neutral pelvis and neutral neck alignment maintaining the body’s natural curves. It establishes correct recruitment of muscles and addresses overworked muscles of the body.
