Pilates Matwork

 It’s an exercise program that focuses on postural muscles, that is, those muscles that help keep the body balanced and are essential to supporting the spine. The method is also indicated in the field of postural rehabilitation. In particular, Pilates exercises help acquire awareness of the spine’s alignment and of breathing by strengthening the muscles of the deep trunk, which are very important to help alleviate and prevent back pain. With this training method, not only the abdominals are reinforced but also the deepest muscular bands near the column and around the pelvis are reinforced. The key point of the method is the toning and reinforcement of the Power House, that is, all the muscles connected to the trunk: the abdomen, the buttocks, the adductors and the lumbar region. Pilates Matwork exercises should be fluid and perfectly executed, and be combined with proper breathing.
