Pilates is a method of conditioning that transforms and rebalances muscles and skeleton into a longer and stronger body. It is based on six original principles: Control, Concentration, Centering, Precision, Flowing Movement and Breath. Movements are initiated from the core and are corrective in nature.

In the words of Joseph Pilates: "In ten sessions you will feel a difference; in twenty sessions you will see a difference, and in thirty sessions you will have an entirely new mind/body awareness."

I've had 2 sessions so far and I feel that it's good for me. It helps to develop flexibility, strength, agility and resiliency in me. A pretty good stress buster as well!
