What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise that is used to stretch and revitalize the body. Pilates is used by dancers, athletes, those who are in pain or have sustained an injury, and people of many ages. This form of exercise was first developed by a man who was known as Joseph Pilates. He first designed this fitness program to be used on World War I soldiers as a rehabilitation method for those who suffered from disabilities. As a child, Joseph was a sickly boy but later on in his years, he grew to be very strong. His goal for Pilates was to balance, stretch, and revitalize the body as well as the mind. When a person takes up Pilates, it has been known to strengthen, tone, improve flexibility and you get an overall feeling of health in your body. When you perform Pilates, your main area of focus is on the torso area of your body. Pilates strengthens your muscles with creating any added bulk on the body. It is also helpful in improving body awareness.

Doing Pilates

Pilates is an exercise form that can be performed by almost anyone who is willing to give it a try. It is usually performed on a mat but it can also make use of exercise balls and other Pilates equipment such as a Reformer. Most of the Pilates forms are done while the subject is lying down. However, there are certain exercises that can be performed while sitting, kneeling, or standing as well. Pilates is a great exercise for relieving back pain because it focuses on strengthening your core muscles, which include the back. Pilates exercises are very smooth and controlled movements, so there is little danger of getting injured while exercising. It’s also a great way to work on your strength and flexibility, both of which help to alleviate back pain.
However, as with yoga, you should avoid any extreme twisting or bending movements. Also as with yoga, Pilates exercises should be done on a mat or other soft, supportive surface.One of the best benefits of Pilates is that it helps improve posture, a common cause of lower back pain. Use common sense when doing Pilates; if exercises that arch your back hurt, don’t do those. Or if exercises that round your back hurt, do only the back arching ones. When you practice Pilates remember to wear something that is comfortable. You should wear an outfit that is able to stretch with your body and not wear something that is either too tight or too loose. You must understand that Pilates involves a wide variety of positions so you want to feel your best moving around a lot. During this form of exercise, shoes are usually not worn.
