People choose Pilates for many reasons. Some of the physical benefits of Pilates include increased strength, flexibility, and balance, along with better posture, reduced pain, and decreased stress. Its emphasis on core strength, spinal decompression, and mobility make it one of the most highly recommended remedies for chronic back pain. Due to its low impact nature, Pilates is safe and effective for all ages, body types, and experience levels.
In addition to the physical benefits of Pilates, there is a mind-body component that makes Pilates so special. Learning new movement patterns has been shown to enhance brain function (including motor control, coordination, and memory). Being able to focus and center your mind on your movement allows you to leave each session with a lot less stress and a renewed sense of accomplishment!
At Pilates of San Diego, our base piece of equipment is the Pilates Reformer. This unique machine uses springs, pulleys, and bodyweight to perform various resistance exercises targeting specific muscle groups. Pilates exercises increase bone density and strength without the risks that come with other weight-bearing formats. Pilates is also different from traditional resistance and strength training because the emphasis is on muscle elongation, which improves muscle elasticity. This in turn greatly increases flexibility and mobility in the body, helps correct muscle imbalances, and helps prevent future injuries.
Pilates is about more than just looking your best. It’s about living the best life you can.
