The Pilates method is a physical movement program designed to stretch, strenghen, and balance the body. Pilates exercices focus on abdominal strength, spine pelvis and shoulder stabilization, muscular flexibility, breath control, postural symmetry, joint mobility and strengthening through the complete range of motion of all joints. Instead of isolating muscle groups, the hole body is trained, integrating the upper and lower extremities with the trunk.

The principles are :

  • concentration
  • centering
  • control
