Classical Pilates Benefits: The Healthy Individual

The Pilates Method was primarily designed around a healthy individual as a form of corrective exercise to combat the effects of modern life that Joseph Pilates observed in the general population of his time such as, poor posture, poor flexibility, giving rise to muscular skeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain and shoulder issues etc. These issues are still prevalent today however due to the faster pace of life, more cars, more sedentary lifestyle and a reduction in the amount of structured physical activity lots of the population take part in, the effects are more widespread. When an individual decides to begin to regularly practice the Classical Pilates method they can expect to experience the following benefits:

1.Develops almost every aspect of physical fitness: strength, flexibility, co-ordination, agility and endurance.
2.Heightens body awareness
3.Enhances body control
