Benefits Of Pilates Exercises

"Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara were very insistent that Pilates is a whole body and even a whole lifestyle approach," says Cynthia Laportilla, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute. She explains Pilates has three guiding principles: whole body health, whole body commitment, and breath, which is the first and the last thing that you do in your life. "Joseph Pilates used to talk about breath as being an internal shower, cleansing the inside of the body."
