"After 10 sessions you will feel better, after 20 sessions you will look better and after 30 sessions you will have a new body.” (J. H. Pilates)
Pilates is perfect harmony of body and mind – a method to maintain good physical condition and feel great mentally. It gained its popularity owing to Hollywood stars and their recommendations. The essence of this exercise consists of six fundamental principles: breathing, concentration, control, centre, precision and fluency. It is an activity that requires concentration on correct breathing and movement performance technique.
It focuses on balancing the muscle imbalance between stronger or weaker muscle groups. The exercise consists of individual stretching and toning exercises performed in standing, lying or sitting positions. Pilates will help you to strengthen and relax mainly the spinal muscles weakened due to constant sitting in front of the computer, as well as to strengthen psoas, abdominal, pelvis, femoral and brachial muscles.
After some time, your body will obtain a great shape, your flexibility will improve and your aching spine will finally straighten. After a Pilates session, you will feel fit, fresh and full of energy. Your stress, as well as the burden of everyday problems, will be gone.
