A better posture, a flatter stomach and more toned muscles.
The Pilates method is a gentle gymnastics inspired from yoga, dance and martial arts started by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s in the USA to to train and heal gymnasts, dancers, athletes and get those injured in the First World War back into shape. So it was initially a method designed and developed for men!
Learning balance from cardio-vascular work-out, from muscle strengthening and from improvement of breathing, the exercises from the Pilates method aim for a harmonious development of the figure and interior strength, whilst remaining gentle. No swift contractions, the method helps the skeleton as much as the muscles.
Ludique, on utilise (ou pas) des accessoires ballons, cerceaux, élastiques qui induisent des déséquilibres, et incitent le corps à faire appel à une série spécifique de muscles stabilisateurs. Cela permet d’activer les muscles profonds, de relâcher les zones tendues, et d’équilibrer la musculature.
En pilates, ce n’est pas ce que vous faites qui est important, mais comment vous le faites!
In Pilates, it is not what you do that is important, rather how you do it!
