What are the benefits of Pilates?


Movement and exercise are one of the best things you can do for your health. We hear this every day in the news, we hear it from health professionals, we hear it from our teachers and we hear it from our mum & dads. And there is good reason for that! Just some of the benefits that exercise can promote include: numerous hormones are released with exercise that are good for our mental health, controlling body weight, muscle strength and endurance, cardiovascular improvements, bone density, joint stability, lymphatic flow and much more. How does this relate to Pilates? Pilates is a method of exercise. So along with all of the benefits that general movement and exercise bring, Pilates has its own set of benefits.
