If you have been looking to expand your horizons by getting into a new type of exercise, you may want to consider Pilates. Not only is this one of the most popular forms of exercise, but it is also one of the safest. It provides great results and works on many levels – with the body and the mind, all combined to form one comprehensive approach to health and fitness. Because Pilates is a low impact/no impact exercise discipline, it is suitable for just about everyone – from professional athletes and ballet dancers, to kids, pregnant women, the elderly, and even those who have sustained injuries, but want to remain fit.
In addition to classes, you can also purchase a range of Pilates products, such as books and clothing, that will help to make your Pilates experience more pleasant. Pilates consists of a variety of movements that are carried out in a slow and focussed manner. Most of the movements focus on the core muscles that carry the skeletal structure, so getting the poses or movements right is absolutely crucial. Breathing correctly through the movements also plays a big role, and it often takes some time to get this right. The benefits, however, are indisputable. It provides a great cardio workout without any impact on the joints and bones, and breathing through the movements provides better breath control, and therefore, better stress management.
If you are looking for the perfect form of exercise, Pilates is for you. You will be able to find excellent instruction at our studio at BASI Pilates, and all you have to do is make an appointment with one of our consultants to discuss your exercise needs. He or she will conduct a thorough assessment with you to ensure that you follow the correct Pilates routine or attend the right classes, in order to avoid injury.
