Pilates is very similar to Yoga but emphasizes your body’s core. This includes your abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, buttocks and the like.
It’s because of this focus on the core that Pilates is great at developing key physical characteristics needs to perform effective exercises – strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance and good posture.
As opposed to going out for full on ‘burn’ of the muscles, Pilates emphasizes good form. It teaches you to think about how you use your muscles during a workout so you can use them better in everyday life. For instance, you’ll soon be standing and sitting taller and walking more gracefully.
