The benefits of Pilates

Pilates is a complete training technique, from both a health and aesthetic point of view. Pilates, for example, helps to remedy a backache, a muscular injury or to refine a silhouette. A range of exercises will help you learn, or re-learn, how to find an optimal posture through self-growth.

Many people think of Pilates as a gentle gym, when in fact Pilates is a physical activity requiring sustained effort, as the following description shows:

  • trains the whole body
  • engages the entire musculature
  • helps you acquire good posture and a toned body (a healthy, supple and muscular back, shapely legs, firm buttocks, a flat stomach and toned arms).
  • improves flexibility and balance
  • helps manage stress
  • strengthens abdominal muscles for a flat stomach
  • strengthens the entire muscular chain
  • reduces or eliminates back pain
  • protects against repeat injuries
  • improves concentration
  • helps relieve osteoporosis
  • helps prevent sports injuries
  • helps manage the menopause period
