 Ten_Pilates_Mind_Body_Connection

Pilates represents a synthesis of Western and Eastern fitness ideals; the strength and muscle tone focus we are accustomed to mixed with the static stretching, rest and contemplation we see in many Eastern exercises. The result of this mixture is a practice with an increased mind-body connection, allowing centred movement with physical elements that can relieve mental fatigue. Focus your mind; achieve your movement.
