What is Pilates? ……Such a simple question and yet so difficult for us to answer, because Pilates is so many great health and fitness benefits all rolled into one.

To answer it, I’m going to steal the words of one of my favourite Pilates Master teachers, Alycea Ungaro.

She recently replied that Pilates is ‘Your total health insurance policy’ and this is why:

  1. It is our Cardio workout – we work up a sweat. That is important because Heart Disease is a real concern.
  2. It is our Strength training – we work until our muscles shake and tremor. That is important because we lose a little muscle mass every year, as we age.
  3. It is our Flexibility training – many exercises are a perfect balance, being half strength, half stretch. That is important because mobility is an indicator of how long we live.
  4. It is our coordination training, our balance training and our postural training.
  5. It is our mental workout – because the intense concentration that is required to execute a proper workout, leaves you free of any stress.
  6. Pilates does it all !
