Pilates Sample Exercises: On this website there are a very large number of excellent examples for you. A smorgasbord in fact! You may have a particular exercise or stretch you are looking for and you will find it here.
The benefits of pilates (pronounced pil-ah-tes), for both our body and our mind are many. Our body benefits with both strengthening and stretching. Our mind benefits with clarity and mental strength. If your mind is on the job, your performance is greatly enhanced, so therefore the mind body connection to my mind is crucial. Put your "mind in your muscle" and both your physical and mental wellbeing will be enhanced together with a greater awareness of your body. As Joseph Pilates said "It is the mind that builds the body".
These exercises will lengthen muscle rather than bulk it up as it happens with other forms of exercise. You'll be toned, strong, flexible and curvy rather than bulky.
