They include fitness experts, health and beauty practitioners, yoga instructors and Begoña Pedraza, who leads the Pilates Studio. Her classes are a hit and becoming more popular all the time, but just what is Pilates and how does it benefit you?
It is a system of over 100 exercises that was originally developed some 80 years ago by German-born Joseph Pilates and builds greatly on ancient Oriental techniques and philosophies as well as Western ones. Through a series of controlled movements and exercises, it improves body and mind, using simple exercises on the mat that harness your own bodyweight, as well as those that include special equipment called the Reformer, the Cadillac, Chair and Barrel.
The advantages of Pilates are many, ranging from improving posture, flexibility and fluency of movement, not to mention balance, to making for a healthier spine, strengthening the muscles -especially the core enabling deeper and better breathing - in so doing improving concentration levels and lowering stress and anxiety. In athletes it reduces the chance of injury and shortens recuperation periods.
