Do I have to be fit?Pilates Web #3

No. Pilates is for everyone. From the elderly to the elite athlete or dancer. From a young teenager to a new mother. Everyone can benefit from Pilates, we all need strength, stability and efficiency of movement. It’s something that can never be fully mastered or obtained so the next challenge is always around the corner to look forward to and all classes are focused on clients progressing and meeting their goals.

Is it like yoga?

While there are a few exercises that might cross over with yoga, the Pilates focus is very different. Pilates looks at skeletal alignment and aims to bring balance back to the body. It works on creating true support from the deepest muscle layers of the body and then combining that with dynamic flowing movements. It prepares us for our day to day active lives the way cross training prepares an athlete or dancer for performance.

Is it just stretching?

Not at all. Pilates is focused on dynamic movements in all ranges of motion and for all skill/strength levels. The muscles are a like a pulley system, though so when one muscle contracts the opposite muscle group will lengthen. It’s about how this balance is performed and controlled that Pilates focuses on. Efficiency and purity of movement. Creating stability and strength. Retraining the body correct habits and muscle recruitment control for specific movements.
