What Pilates workouts are all about
Pilates is a method of whole-body training that is based on a decided understanding of the human body and has been very carefully worked out. In Pilates, special attention is always paid to the so-called Power House, the supporting muscles around the spine. However, it is not only about individual muscle groups, but through Pilates the body as a whole can be strengthened and mobilised, which usually also improves posture. In addition, the complex Pilates training trains coordination skills, promotes fitness and contributes to better body awareness. The movements of Pilates are carried out fluently and the exercise is considered to be very easy on the joints. Athletes like to use Pilates as a balance to their sometimes one-sided training. Pilates can also be used in rehabilitation and is basically suitable for everyone, as it offers a wide range of adaptation options that allow training to be tailored to individual needs. The various Pilates equipment makes an important contribution to the wide range of possibilities. Pilates tools and aids such as the reformer developed by Jospeh Pilates are of great value for training.
Whoever studies the biography of Joseph Pilates, the founder or inventor of the Pilates method, learns a lot of interesting background information and realises how many empirical values have gone into the development of this method. There is also a lot of knowledge behind the Pilates equipment and its use about favourable movement sequences and optimal training measures.
What similarities does Pilates actually have to yoga?
There are some parallels or similarities between Pilates and the physical exercises of yoga. In Pilates training, some exercises can be found that resemble or even resemble certain yoga asanas. An important element in both Pilates and Hatha Yoga is conscious breathing. However, some exercises that are reminiscent of yoga asanas are performed in Pilates with certain small variations, as the focus is slightly different.
Is Pilates also relaxing? Does Pilates have a mental component?
As already briefly mentioned, Pilates training is quite complex and therefore requires a high level of concentration throughout. The permanent activation of the Power House alone, as well as the focus on breathing, but also the execution of the movement sequences, some of which require good coordination skills, mean that you are wide awake during Pilates and can't let your mind wander. This automatically has the effect of distracting you from your everyday worries during the Pilates workout and at the same time training your concentration in a way that relaxes you at the same time.
