Pilates was developed to build on your body's core strength in the back, abdominal and pelvic muscles using low impact exercises. There are no age limits and it doesn't matter what your level of fitness is. Pilates can help everyone improve their physical health and fitness as well as reduce stress levels. It can also be used to alleviate pain from previous injuries and prevent new ones by strengthening those core muscles.
Written by a qualified Pilates instructor, this book aims to guide people through the learning process with simple instructions, diagrams and information on the basic principles behind the movements and techniques. All the information you need for a safe and effective workout is found in this book; not only is it a fantastic start for beginners, it is also a great companion to those who are already practising Pilates.
The book will explain how Pilates originated, the basic principles, the fundamentals of Pilates, the different exercises and positions and how to move through stages one, two and three of each workout.
