Pilates exercises promote an even musculature throughout the body by strengthening the core. The core is considered the "center" of the body and consists of the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. Pilates also stresses spinal and pelvic alignment, which is critical in getting us to move the way we're supposed to move to avoid injury. Pilates is an excellent way to strengthen the abdominal, lower back and pelvic regions. Pilates is often used in rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation training of those individuals who suffer from back, hip or neck pain.
