Pilates is a type of gymnastics focused on controlling posture – through the “adjustment of the center of gravity” – in turn necessary to gain greater harmony and fluidity in movements.
The goal of its creator, Joseph Hubertus Pilates, was to make people more aware of themselves, their body and their mind to unite them in a single, dynamic and functional entity.
In fact, if practiced continuously and systematically, Pilates improves:
- Strength and resistance to isometric strength
- Control and balance.
