Pilates is a form of exercise that aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. Exercises are often done on a mat, or using special equipment like soft balls and bands, and can be adapted for people with limited mobility.
Pilates exercises are low-impact but work every part of the body. They can help you build muscle strength and control and improve your balance, posture and body awareness. Pilates can also help your psychological wellbeing by relieving stress and tension, and offering the social advantages of being part of a group.
