What does it consist
It is an anaerobic exercise or, in other words, an exercise performed for a short time and at high intensities, which is based, fundamentally, on strength.
The main objective of Pilates is to optimize the control and musculature in addition to the flexibility of the body. Like all physical exercise it means an increase in energy expenditure, therefore, it also helps to maintain a balanced weight.
There are 6 basic principles: concentration, control, precision, fluidity, respiration and center. This last principle is known as mansion of power. This area is formed by the abdominal muscles, the lower back and the buttocks and the intention is that, through its strengthening, other parts of the body are also exercised.
Most exercises are done through a series of slow movements and with the help of material specifically created for Pilates. In each controlled movement we try to be as precise as possible though breathing, a correct alignment of our body and concentration. Thus, violent and uncontrolled gestures that can harm the organism are avoided.
