Pilates is a physical fitness system that was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates

The Pilates method emphasizes quality over quantity. It is not about the repetition, it is about the precision. Doing each exercise with complete attention to how, not how many, yields significant results in a remarkably short period of time. This approach requires focus, thus, the mind has to be engaged along with the body. Every movement is done with attention to breath, form and efficient movement patterns. The exercises are safe, low impact and appropriate for every level of fitness and every age.

Pilates works to educate all your muscles, improving flexibility, mobility, stability, and strength. Pilates exercises can be performed on a mat or on special equipment/apparatus.

Benefits of Pilates

Are you a cyclist? Runner?Tennis player?Golfer? Then Pilates will benefit you. Pilates is not only a refreshing mind-body workout, but it also helps you become more in tune with your body’s specific needs and lays a perfect foundation for whatever sport you’re about to tackle. Here are three benefits of Pilates for athletes.

Pilates lengthens muscles and, in turn, increases the flexibility you need to participate in many activities. Short, bulky muscles are the types that are most prone to injury. By doing the natural, full body movements of Pilates, you will gain lean, long muscle mass that helps with strength and speed as well as healthy long-term fat loss. You’ll also increase in tendon, bone and ligament strength which is vital for all athletes.

  • Pilates exercises strengthen your core. From your shoulders to knees, this whole “powerhouse” is essential for balance and stability and preventing falls and injuries.
  • Pilates improves sports overall performance by correcting the muscle imbalance
  • Pilates exercises strengthen your core muscles

Those are just a few reasons among many that make Pilates such a beneficial workout and essential for your athletic lifestyle. Many athletes have incorporated the Pilates regimen to their team workouts because they know the infinite benefits of Pilates.

Functional training has its roots in physical therapy. The idea is simple and primarily involves training for specific movements by doing similar movements. An example of this is a basketball player who is trying to increase his high-jump. A traditional approach would have him doing leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses. A functional approach, however, would simply have him doing regular squats and jump squats.

Functional training often involves weight-bearing activities with lots of emphasis on core stabilization. Functional training also teaches your body’s neuromuscular system to recruit your muscles in a more efficient way.An example of this is a martial artist. If he simply lifts his leg and uses his quadriceps to kick his opponent he will not be able to generate a lot of power. Through functional training, he can be taught to create a lot more power by starting the movement with a trunk rotation originating at the core. If performed properly, this type of training leads to strength increases,increased joint stabilization and muscular balance. It  helps to prevent injuries.

yoga is a wellbeing framework that works at numerous dimensions inside the body. As a framework, it has three principal components (Tristhana): breath (pranayama), gaze or focus (drishti), and posture (asana). These three work on three dimensions: the sensory system, the psyche, and the body, and they are constantly performed together.

Some might think that breathing is just breathing, but there is actually an incredible richness to the breath. How we breathe reflects how we feel, and how we feel determines how we think and act. In this framework, the breath is a fruitful window into the mind-body connection because it is a meeting ground for the conscious and unconscious self.

The combination of these elements is what prepares us for high-performance and challenging physical practices while allowing a state of calm focus at all times. When we develop the ability to maintain a balance between ease and effort in each yoga pose, we also develop the strength and focus to maintain calm and clarity in any situation—on or off the mat.
