Pilates—How it Works


These exercises are usually done in a specific order at various levels of difficulty. The moves may look simple but take a lot of precision and control. You can do Pilates on a matt in class, at home, or individually with an instructor. Pilates targets important areas with focus on stabilizing and strengthening your abdominals and back. It generates flexibility and strength using your own body weight..
