Pilates strengthens the body from the inside out by working on the muscles of your back, abdominals, hips and shoulders. Strong core muscle activation allows each joint to be more efficient and decreases muscle strain and joint pain during any activity.

Pilates is similar to yoga. Both forms of exercise develop muscles with strength and flexibility forming long lean muscles that dancers and athletes love. Both demand the participant develop a mind- body awareness of what the body is doing and include breathing as an important component of exercise. Pilates differs from yoga in that it comes from a therapeutic basis which make it ideal for rehabilitation, and yoga has more of a spiritual basis, making is excellent for stress relief.

This makes Pilates ideal for alleviating, hip, back, knee, shoulder, and ankle pain.
