Joseph Pilates originally designed this system of exercises using specialized apparatus, springs and other equipment that is designed to improve physical strength, alignment in the body, flexibility, endurance, posture, self-awareness, self-image, and mental focus. It has been used by many people to restore muscle imbalances and acquire more efficient movement patterns.
Pilates is an excellent method of rehabilitation and functional exercise. Pilates is similar to yoga in the whole body approach to awareness and the development of the mind, but also focuses more specifically on core strengthening and correction of structural imbalances with relationship to alignment. Polestar Pilates helps to facilitate and enhance the changes that clients experience during the Rolfing SI Ten Series, to reduce pain and to improve natural coordinated movement.
