Pilates Essential Principles
CONCENTRATION – key element to connecting your mind and body. Concentrate every time you exercise, use the power of your mind.
CONTROL – Joseph Pilates’ philosophy and basic foundation was the idea of muscle control by the mind. No sloppy movements propelled by momentum.
CENTERING – using the muscles between your rib cage and hips leads to a flatter stomach, better posture and back pain prevention.
BREATHING – improving blood circulation helps us to relax. You eventually learn how to coordinate a deep inhale and exhale with each movement.
FLUIDITY– emphasize grace of motion over speed and don’t isolate movements.
PRECISION– focus on one precise and perfect movement instead of 10 sloppy ones
