Sitting for long periods of time can increase your risk for chronic health problems. Pilates will help to strengthen muscles and relieve tension from the stress of school work and encourage blood circulation. Pilates is very good for the core.
Pilates is a low-impact modality that strengthens the muscles while improving postural alignment. While we always stick to the core of Basi Pilates, every class is different. Breathing is a focal point during a class. Not only does it help to activate the muscles but it also helps clients to be present in the movement which can help relieve tension and stress. You don’t have to be the most flexible or strongest person to do Pilates as you work within your own range.
