Pilates is a method of physical and therapeutic fitness that helps the body remain in a good condition by strengthening your muscles to keep the balance of your body and rendering it more flexible.
It is part of the movement that aims at creating a union of mind and body. Pilates is a method of total body conditioning, a unique instrument to achieve good physical condition. All of us in our daily life harm our body without even noticing it. We tend to bend instead of keeping an upright posture, use more one side of our body (and in this case we use more some of our body muscles, while others remain inactive) that is to say we lose our physical harmony.
Pilates aims exactly at helping the body restore its natural harmony and is the key to correct spinal alignment, posture and use of the body in all our daily activities.
