Pilates is a safe way to build up core strength and increase your body awareness by focusing on breathing, exercise technique and posture.
Everyone talks about core muscles these days but what actually is your core? The core is a complex system of muscles that span across your lower back, abdomen and hips. The roof of your core is your diaphragm (also known as your breathing muscle) and the floor of your core consists of your pelvic floor muscles. Your core is responsible for keeping your body functional in everyday movements e.g. standing and walking, sitting, twisting, bending and lifting.
How Pilates can help
Pilates exercises dynamically strengthens the muscles around your shoulder girdle, back, abdomen, hips and pelvic floor. By strengthening the core muscles you could help to ease back pain, improve your balance, reduce symptoms of incontinence, improve your posture and lift heavy objects without excessive stress on your body.
