The power of fitting in a proper workout never fails to amaze me. For starters, movement helps me stimulate energy flow and makes me feel alive first thing in the morning.
It is an essential component in the quest for a healthy mind and regular exercise is vital for accomplishing a sense of well-being. There are many different ways in which you can awaken the body. I highly encourage you to find the kind of exercise that work for you—Classical Pilates is my number one.
Pilates has always been a popular way to keep in shape, designed by Joseph Pilates during the First World War, the exercises help with a range of different ailments. From correcting posture to focusing the mind and soothing aching muscles.
Classical Pilates is a method with a sequence to the work, which was designed to move the body through a full range of movement, in all directions. The sequence builds intelligently with foundational exercises at the beginning and more complex exercises as you gain strength and control. A strong core is probably the greatest benefit, which keeps everything in check: your posture will improve, and your abdominals will help support the spine and protect against injuries.
The workout includes a mat, reformer, and a few additional pieces of equipment that are selected by the instructor to improve, intensify, and address unique body challenges. Working with all the parts and not just one component, makes it a powerful system. The transitions between exercises are exercises in themselves, it’s important to keep a continuous flow.
Classical Pilates is essentially Pilates in the truest most authentic form, as Joseph Pilates intended. Teachers have to go through a rigorous training program, with a minimum of 600 hours of training, under teachers who are within the lineage of Joseph Pilates himself.
