Pilates is a form of rehabilitative exercise developed by Joseph H. Pilates (1883-1967). The movements work the spine in every plane of motion to improve range of motion, flexibility, stability, and core strength. The exercises can be done on the mat using your own body weight or incorporate props such as the fitness circle. Pilates, like yoga, is considered to be mind-body exercise as breath is incorporated throughout. This form of exercise can be a wonderful, gentle way of strengthening the core to alleviate pain from various muscular imbalances.
All you need to get started is some open floor space and a mat or comfortable surface! As you progress, some other props like a stability ball and a resistance band may be helpful. We have these available for purchase through Sunu and can ship them if needed!
