Pilates works the whole body, emphasizing control, precision and concentration in both the mind and the body. The focus of the movements is on quality not quantity. The abdominal muscles lower back and buttocks (“powerhouse”) serve as the center of all movement, allowing the rest of the body to move freely. Its six principles-concentration, control, centering, breathing, flow and precision-train the body to move efficiently. The balance between strength and flexibility creates a healthy, symmetrical workout for all muscle groups resulting in a leaner, more balanced, and stronger body.
