The Pilates system, when taught by a properly trained instructor, goes beyond an exercise routine. By utilizing the mind for control, as opposed to unconscious movements that work only a “pet set” of muscles, Pilates trains the body to shift out of old patterns. The system connects movement to a stable core, building powerful, flexible muscles and spine, allowing for greater efficiency and ease of movement.
