I’m a Pilates person. It’s great. I had a chronic back, a pinched nerve and a hip problem and it’s completely solved all of it. I love it.

The spine, for Joseph Pilates, was the key to physical and emotional wellbeing. Neutral spine alignment is everything.

“If your spine is stiff at 30,” he once said, “you are old. If it is flexible at 60, you are young.”

Pilates develops the deep muscles of the back and abdomen to support your spine, and focuses on breathing to promote better posture.

Pilates teaches various breathing techniques to enhance relaxation, lower blood pressure, and to activate specific muscles that help improve posture.

Joseph Pilates believed that focusing on breathing was vital. “It is tragically deplorable,” he once said, “to contemplate the millions who have never mastered the art of correct breathing.”
