WHY PILATES: Expert Pilates Instruction
Exercise won’t work if you don’t do it. That sounds really obvious, but most fitness routines are time-consuming, boring and really hard to stick with.
Pilates is different. It is a form of exercise, but it is so much more. No matter how many skills you master, there are more to learn.
Pilates is more like a sport than a workout because you are constantly challenged. It’s not about zoning out on a machine or doing countless repetitions. Doing Pilates requires you to continually think about how you are moving your body. And, just like in sports, strength and flexibility go hand in hand.
Pilates will give you a workout routine that you will stick with because it will change your body as you challenge your mind.
“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.” — Joseph Pilates
Once you gain this body-mind connection, the way that you carry yourself as you move through the world will change.
