Benefits of Pilates

Updated: Sep 4, 2022

We know that Pilates strengthens the core, a corset like group of muscles that stabilise the trunk and pelvis. We also teaches good postural habits and healthy movement patterns, helping to reduce the risk of future injuries. Pilates engages the abdominal muscles and lengthens the spine to promote a stronger, more supple back.

But here is a list of just some of the other benefits that participating in Pilates on a regular basis will give you. Ones that you may not have known about
