Gaining Muscle Power with Pilates
Happy Monday! Pilates, like yoga, is an exercise program that has become increasingly popular in the exercise world. Created by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, this German program combines not only stretching but muscle control and strengthening.
When I was attending a pre-professional ballet school, Pilates became a supplement in my workout routine. Not only did this program allow me to release tension in my muscles (as the cool down of Pilates allows the participant to stretch deeply) but I was able to strengthen muscles I was not able to focus on with other exercise routines.
In addition to stretching and powering the participants muscles, you also learn breathing techniques that can be applied in stressful everyday life situations. As someone who is constantly on the go and busy, learning a simple breathing exercise to calm me down in essential as I am able to focus on my breath and not all of the chaos around me.
