As Pilates instructors we know that the benefits of Pilates are far-‐reaching. Pilates is so much more than just a series of exercises, it is a mind-‐body therapy that changes the way we move, think and interact. Far from just toning and sculpting, Pilates alters the way we move and hold our bodies in everything we do.
The benefits of Pilates can be seen clearly in the workplace. The typical office worker is overstressed, out of shape, and run down. They are typically shallow breathers, slouchers and may suffer Occupational Overuse Syndrome. Pilates, with its unique series of exercises, is able to correct all of these things. It teaches us correct movement patterns and breathing technique and improves posture.
