Originally developed by Joseph Pilates, this efficient, gentle training method involves a series of exercises that teach you how to activate and coordinate several muscle groups at once — starting with your core. While some classes incorporate equipment, like a reformer machine, many of the movements can be done on a mat.
Pilates exercises help to build overall strength, stability, and coordination, and many see improvements in their core strength by doing just 10 to 15 minutes of dedicated practice per day!Pilates Schedule
