Breathing – In to prepare and out for effort
Concentration – Internal and external environment
Control – Mind body Connection and Correction
Centring – Engaging the core and stabilising the muscles
Precision – Alignment and integration of the required muscles to create movement
Flow – A smooth, uninterrupted continuity of movement, allowing one move to flow into the next
Routine and repetition- Use what you learn in your Pilates classes on a regular basis and you will feel the positive results.The muscle and joints learn the correct way to move.
