Pilates fits all

Fighting stress + meditation + yoga = Pilates. Pilates has a fairly simple formula, but in this simplicity lies genius. The fact is that when we learn to control our consciousness, we, willy-nilly, learn to concentrate on a particular lesson or exercise, from which the increase in our effectiveness necessarily follows. It is not only about the development of coordination, flexibility and muscle corset, but also about the development of your plasticity and grace. In addition, strengthening your body, you do not exert heavy loads on your spine.

Absolutely all Pilates exercises belong to the class of static exercises with a very small range of motion. Because of this, you can not get injured. That is why Pilates is often engaged in the rehabilitation of the injured musculoskeletal system, as well as those who suffer from serious diseases associated with the spine, such as osteochondrosis. Pilates will help not only to get rid of painful sensations, but also strengthen your body.

In addition, Pilates has a special unconventional breathing technique. These special breathing exercises are aimed at developing your respiratory system, enriching the body with oxygen and relieving the nervous system.

That is why most of the efforts during training on such a simulator will take you precisely to keep on the unstable “deck” of the simulator. So you train a lot of small muscles that are usually not involved, but no less important.

2. Exercises with special equipment. Such exercises are performed on the floor. It uses various tools such as rubber shock absorbers, balls, dumbbells, or special Pilates rings.

3. Classic exercises on the floor. This exercise class is performed lying down or sitting on the floor. The purpose of this complex is to relieve pain, as well as improve your posture.
