This type of health-improving exercise is becoming more and more popular every year and attracts people of all ages.
“Pilates focuses on strengthening the body, developing muscles, improving posture, balance and coordination. Each exercise includes a technique for correct breathing. This helps to perform the movements as efficiently as possible. Pilates lengthens and strengthens muscles, gives them elasticity, improves joint mobility, which is especially important for older people, "Babushkinsky said.
In the classroom, the trainer is attentive to each participant, the exercises are done in a certain order, one after the other, gently changing the load. This approach does not allow you to get tired quickly.
