What are the health benefits of Pilates?

There are many reports on the health benefits of Pilates, with the general consensus being that Pilates helps improve posture, muscle tone and flexibility, core strength and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.

Pilates classes frequently provide pain relief to people with non-specific lower back pain by strengthening the muscles that support the spine and strengthening core muscles to stabilize the body.

In addition to general health benefits, Pilates also leaves you with a slimmer waist, toned stomach and a leaner appearance.
