One of the best things about the Pilates method is that it works so well for a wide range of people.
Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people who at various stages of physical rehabilitation.
The top benefits doing of Pilates exercise that people report are that they become stronger, longer, leaner, and more able to do anything with grace and ease.
Pilates is an Adaptable Method
Modification is the key to Pilates exercise success with a variety of populations. All exercises are developed with modifications that can make a workout safe and challenging for a person at any level.
Core strength is the foundation of Pilates exercise. The core muscles are the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support the spine and movement.
As you develop your core strength you develop stability throughout your entire torso.

Does your body do best with more protein? More raw food? Less caffeine?⠀

I am completely copying this #thankfulthursday tradition from my pilates idol/father/mentor (whatever the phrase may be) to express my gratefulness for this studio that made me move to my men J5's ryhtym & flow this morning 🙏 I am also thankful for #basipilates that made me more aware & literate about movement that had always been a form of release for me 🙏 like I know what planes of movement I am sliding and drifting as I am moving 😊 oh also those illustrations on the wall of my mat space would have never been there if it wasn't for the brilliance of #basi school of pilates education that takes different forms in different sources and platforms. The more u dig the more u're inspired because it is a long history of thought on movement & and a constantly evolving one at the same time! I love it ❤ Ve gene bir pilates stüdyosu açilis eforisi 😊Ve gene Türkiyem muhtesem bir halde! eee acilalim sacilalim o halde 😊 #lovepilates#pilatesforever#pilatesforeverybody#pilatesforthesoul#peacelovepilates#pilatesismytherapy#pilatescesme#pilates#cesme#pilatesstudio#secondfloor#lovemystudio 😍
