Pilates was invented and developed in the 20th century by a man named Joseph Pilates. This system of exercise is targeted towards improving the body by toning and conditioning all muscle groups while developing better breathing habits, improving posture and learning to use the mental concentration and focus.
It helps to improve overall balance and dexterity (co-ordination) as well as streamlining the body and helping to improve flexibility. It is extremely good for rehabilitation from injury and degenerative conditions.
The great thing about Pilates is that the exercises are gentle yet challenging and are designed to place as little strain on the body as possible. Therefore Pilates can be practiced by anyone regardless of age and exercise experience.
