Pilates is a physical fitness system that was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Pilates is now a popular form of body conditioning that focuses on developing flexibility and long, lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals (core), arms, hips, and back. The Pilates style places emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing to relieve stress and increasing blood flow to supply adequate oxygen flow to muscles. other benefits from Pilates include improved coordination and balance.
The great thing about Pilates is how it allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty for beginners to advanced clients. Intensity can be increased overtime as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises. The aim is to achieve equilibrium in flexibility and strength across all body segments and muscle groups.
The Valetudo Health Team incorporates Pilates into their “easy does it” group fitness classes and Exercise Physiology/Physiotherapy injury rehabilitation services.
