Pilates (pronounced puh-lah-teez and not pie-lates) is similar to yoga but emphasizes your body’s core the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, butt, and so on.
For this reason, Pilates develops much of what exercisers need strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture with a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. The discipline emphasizes correct form instead of going for the burn. With so many exercise variations and progressions, you may have a hard time getting bored with Pilates.
Pilates moves require you to engage virtually your whole body. At times, you may try to strengthen one muscle while stretching another.
