Pilates Principles: Centering

Pilates starts at your center.  Your core (powerhouse).  All other movement stems from your torso and than moves out your limbs.  Once you strengthen your center you are able to move with grace and freedom.  Your center is your foundation.    

You should begin any action, whether it be standing up or picking up groceries, by first engaging your core.  In taking this action you avoid excess stain on the spine.  This further can prevent injury.

  1. Each and every Pilates exercise combines strength and flexibility with breathing and total entire body awareness. Learning to pay attention to what your entire body is undertaking and how it moves is a must for obtaining probably the most from your Pilates teaching plan.
