Pilates Exercise: Is It Effective?


Before, I tried few sessions of Pilates exercise but couldn’t keep up due to my busy work life (uhuh?). Anyway, I want to start another session of Pilates exercise soon to enhance my mental and physical well-being.

Joseph Pilates
Joseph Pilates, who developed Pilates which is a combination of aerobics and yoga, believed there is some sort of connection between our physical health and our mental health. Through Pilates exercise, we use our mind to control the movement of our muscles.

Extreme Stress
Pilates exercise is especially helpful for people who undergo extreme stress. The goal of the said exercise is to combine the mind and body.

Principles
Breathing is one principle of Pilates. This is helpful in providing better blood circulation thereby releasing stress.

Centering is another principle of Pilates exercise. This is for the coordination of body movements that should come from the center and outward.

Concentration is what I need. With all the stressors surrounding me, I should be able to eliminate them through Pilates exercise.

Another helpful principle of Pilates exercise is precision. Practitioners of this exercise insist that every movement of Pilates, no matter how difficult it is, has a purpose.

The flow of movement is the last principle of Pilates exercise. The continuous movement will help achieve strength and stamina.

A lot of people have tried Pilates exercise and I must say that they've improved their overall health. Furthermore, Pilates exercise is good for the back, especially when you have back pain. Through this exercise, you will achieve core stability that will support back function.

Pilates exercise is able to help individuals, who have poor posture, stabilize their backs thereby eliminating back pain and improving posture. Potential injury can also be prevented through Pilates exercise.

When you combine Pilates exercise with balanced diet, I think it's a good start to boost your general health.

People have different ways to maintain physical fitness. For some Pilates exercise may work, but for some do not. It actually depends on where individuals find it more convenient.

I've never heard of this exercise before. Is it only for women or can men do it too. Sounds like a good procedure, especially with the relief of back pain. Thanks for bringing this type of exercise to my attention.
