Pilates-based exercise is a great body conditioning complement for yogis and athletes of all kinds. Like yoga asana, Pilates uses your own bodyweight to balance your strength and flexibility, enhance endurance, focus, and coordination, and improve good postural alignment. Pilates primarily focuses on strengthening all aspects of your core, and emphasizes quality and precision of movement over quantity. The effects are greater range of motion in the spine, fluidity in the joints, increased awareness in the core (from pelvic floor to shoulders, back-body to abs, and back again) and improved functional movement for the whole body.
"If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If its completely flexible at 60, then you are young.” ~Joseph Pilates
