Pilates is based on fundamental principles:
- Centring – Bringing focus to the centre of your body, centring our thoughts, feeling and emotions. This cultivates awareness of the way in which our body is moving.
- Concentration – Focusing on the quality of every individual movement, remaining in the present moment. Also, being aware of the overall movements our body is generating.
- Control – Each exercise is carried out with complete muscle control, controlling every part of the body with centring as well as concentration.
- Precision – Growing the precision of our own movements helps by utilising centring, concentration and control. This helps with the fine control over core muscles, and resistance to injuries when performing other sports and activities.
- Breathing – Joseph Pilates highlighted using consistent breathing patterns in his exercises. Using the lungs to breath ‘laterally’ enabling the pelvic and core muscle groups to engage correctly when we move. Breathing is integral to Pilates.
- Flow – Flowing smooth actions, with precision and grace are the essence of Pilates, building up control and precision not only in individual movements but throughout the exercise session.
