BENEFITS OF PILATES
An Australian University study has found that the complications of poor posture include back pain, spinal dysfunction, joint degeneration, rounded shoulders and a pot belly.
The gentle stretching and deep breathing of Pilates can help in the return of fitness.
The exercises can also benefit sportsmen (golfers, skiers, swimmers, footballers, runners etc.) and there are numerous examples of improvement in these sports due to maintaining flexibility, strength and coordination.
