Power Pilates is one of the most effective and complete fitness methods that helps develop and strengthen muscles. It increases strength, flexibility, balance, posture and coordination and is used as a form of physiotherapy. Its advantage lies in the fact that it can be practised by all age groups, no matter the physical fitness. It also improves abilities in all other sports and makes your everyday tasks easier.
During a Pilates class, you stimulate each muscle, tendon and organ in your body, thus enabling the relaxed feeling and improved muscle tone. We devote most of the class to the spine to which we bring back its natural flexibility, relax the nerves and strengthen the surrounding muscles.
By using different props, we interrupt the existing movement pattern and activate muscles which are usually not in use. With an additional mild resistance, we strengthen other supporting muscles, while the maintaining of balance requires the activation of many deep stabilizer muscles. The goal is to “awake” and activate those muscles to avoid the usual knee, ankle, shoulder or back injuries.
