What are the benefits of Pilates?
Proper alignment is balancing your skeleton. Your muscles are in the ideal length without any tension.
Improper alignment is reducing your body’s ability to cope with gravity. This results in aches and pains and limited ability to move.
Pilates gives you an opportunity to learn to correct your misalignments and allow your muscles to work as efficiently as they should.
Pilates strengthens the whole body, targeting each muscle group evenly with a mixture of dynamic and static strength training.
Over time, you will see your muscles gaining tone and looking sculpted, but you’ll also feel much stronger and more energized.
Flexibility is essential for your overall fitness and vitality.
Pilates is the perfect exercise regime to achieve good balance between strength and flexibility.
4. SHAPE AND TONE
Pilates on the Mat and on the Equipments is designed to train every part of your body evenly – front, back, and sides.
Muscles respond quickly to regular exercise, and after a few weeks of Pilates you should notice visible muscle tone and see your body begin to evolve.
While improving your concentration during exercising comes naturally through regular practice.
Pilates builds stamina, not only physical, but mental.
6. STRESS RELIEF
Stress is one of the biggest negative factors of modern life, affecting your physical and mental wellbeing.
Pilates focuses on breathing – a deep, mindful pattern of breathing that instantly enhances feelings of calm and release in the body and mind. You will find that your sleep will improve with regular Pilates, which will greatly reduce any fatigue and stress.

What to wear?
As for footwear, you can either be barefoot or wear socks for your session. If you’re going to go for socks, find yourself a pair with rubber detailing on the soles so you don’t slip on the mat or machine.
