There are many people who think Pilates is only for those who are flexible and fit, but this is not the case. Pilates is amazing for everyone, big or small, old or young, active or not. It will improve posture, keep you looking taller and more refreshed, and feeling better than you have ever felt before. Some people also think Pilates is only for stretching, this again is not the case. While stretching your muscles, you are activating and strengthening them every step of the way. Pilates is great for athletes who need a stretch before performing or to loosen up after one. Pilates is also recommended by many OBGYN’s to pregnant women, this helps relieve the stress and pains they are going through.
