Pilates has been around for about 100 years, and it still amazes me how many people have not heard of this incredible exercise method. It was first created by Joseph Pilates and initially gained popularity among the dance community as a way to recover from and prevent injuries. But you don’t have to be a dancer to practice Pilates — or enjoy the benefits.
Pilates is a full body strengthening system that emphasizes breath, precision, coordination, and core strength. It helps people connect to their bodies in a way they haven’t been able to achieve with traditional strengthening methods.
