2. Move Better:
One of Club Pilates’ beliefs is that pilates will make you move better. The full range of motion offers flexibility because of its focus on strengthening and stretching. “To bend without breaking,” Club Pilates.
3. Posture Improvement:
Pilates requires using the deep core muscles of the abdominals, back and pelvic floor to support your posture allowing your shoulders and neck to relax. Activating those muscles will overtime benefit your posture because have those areas strong help you continue to engage them when without thinking about it, therefore, improving your posture.
