One year on and we are really feeling the benefits of having incorporated Pilates in to our schedule at the Shala. We frequently recommend that students start their Shala journey with Pilates, especially if they are experiencing injuries that are causing pain. With an emphasis on breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment, and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, the classes teach you to become acutely in tune with your body and learn how to control its movement with precision. This helps to break bad habitual patterns and to retrain the body to move properly. This makes Pilates a perfect starting point for many people looking to improve posture, heal injuries, recover post-natally or start exercising for the first time.
