Soft gym with Pilates, exercises adapted to all morphologies
Pilates is a form of soft gymnastic which can be practiced by everyone to provide well-being build a strong body core if you practice it regularly. These exercises can be adapted to offer either gentle strength training for rehabilitation or a strenuous workout vigorous enough to challenge skilled athletes. All Pilates exercises flow from the “five essentials” – breathing, cervical alignment, rib and scapular stabilization, pelvic mobility and use of the transverses abdominis. Each exercise is initiated by stabilizing the core musculature, which includes the abdominal, gluteal, and paraspinal muscles in particular, and then proceeds through a controlled range of motion. Pilates is good for teenagers who wish to train their muscles, for adults who wish to maintain their silhouette and for seniors who want to be physically active..
