What is Pilates exercise?

Pilates is a form of physical exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. Joseph Pilates originally called his method "Contrology", but was later known as the Pilates method of exercise. It is practiced throughout the world.

Pilates emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movements. Core strength is the foundation of this type of exercise. The core muscles are the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support the spine and movement. As you develop your core strength you develop stability throughout your entire torso. This is one of the ways Pilates helps people overcome back pain. As the trunk is properly stabilized, pressure on the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and efficiently.

What equipment is needed for Pilates?

Pilates exercises are done on either a mat on the floor (known as Pilates mat work) or on pilates exercise equipment. The workout equipment that you may use in Pilates generally uses pulleys and resistance from your own body weight on the machine and graduated levels of springs. The reformer is probably the best-known piece of resistance equipment that you will encounter at a Pilates studio.
