The 6 Principles of Pilates


In Pilates lateral thoracic breathing is used. The lungs are filled with air while the abdominals are kept quiet and still. Synchronising breath and movement is a key part of the Pilates exercises.


This refers to the mind controlling the body, both small and large movements. Each exercise should be performed slowly, deliberately and carefully.


Is focusing on the deep muscles of the core or centre, these are between the bottom of your rib cage and the hip bones. Made up of the Transversus Abdominus, Multifidus, Pelvic Floor and the Internal Obliques. When these muscles are strong they protect your spine from injury and help maintain good posture.


Each exercise should flow into the next, with no beginning or end. They should never be jerky and all body parts should work together smoothly.


This is quiet simply giving every Pilates exercise your full concentration. Making sure every movement is correctly performed to create muscle memory.


Position, alignment, breathing and movement all need to be precise for each exercise to be successful. One movement performed perfectly is far better than several performed badly. With Pilates quality is far more important than quantity.
