Pilates can really make a difference to your body and you will feel it. Here we go with the top 10 benefits:

Whole body exercise

Unlike other forms of exercise that target typical areas, Pilates is a complete body exercise. It takes body as an integrated whole and focuses on core strength. Pilates increases strength and improves development of muscles thereby increasing your flexibility.

This unique form of exercise combines breath, body and mind that mean an integrated fitness of both the body and mind. Remember, a healthy mind lives in a healthy body.  This is why Pilates is popular even in the rehab centres.

Stronger Core

Pilates will give you the abs you have always wanted – the flatter stomach. But let me remind you when we want to develop abs we pay a lot of attention to weight loss and not to developing strength of core but the Pilates will give you all of this. The Pilates improves your body movement and thus strengthening the core without much effort.
