Maybe the simpler question would be: Why not Pilates?
There are no other forms of exercise that can offer such a broad range of benefits, both physically and mentally.
Pilates really is the go-to exercise for a clear mind and a healthy body with its unique ability to make you feel relaxed, elated and in seriously great shape.
It lengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion, improving flexibility, strength, balance and body awareness.
Yoga brings the body and mind together and is built on three main elements – exercise, breathing and meditation. Both yoga and Pilates improve muscular and postural strength.
Always consult your doctor before embarking on any new fitness program, especially if you have a pre-existing medical condition or have not exercised in a long time.
