The 6 Principles of Pilates

  1. Breathing
    Breathing is the most important part of exercise that people should learn the art of.  Filling your lungs until they feel full and then exhale all the air back out helps you to focus on the exercise and pushes the blood to your muscles.
  2. Concentration
    If you focus and become more mindful of each movement, you will get the most out of each exercise.  Concentration and focus improves the connection between your mind and body and gives you a better awareness of your body’s movements.
  3. Centering
    Pilates calles the core the “powerhouse” of your body and is where all energy for exercise comes from. If you focus on your core, you can not only calm your body and spirit, but help your muscles work more efficiently.
  4. Control
    Controlling and pacing your movements will allow you to direct every movement with correct form.  Proper, safe and complete muscle control is better for getting good results than speed and high intensity.
  5. Precision
    Performing an exercise with deliverate accuracy is more important than doing lots of repititions with poor form.
  6. Flow
    Each movement in Pilates should be smooth and graceful – think of ballet!
    Continuous, smooth and elegant movement as you work from one pose, exercise or movement to another helps increase your strength and stamina.

    Increases your metabolism and helps you lose weight

    The heat increases your heart rate, without even having to do anything. This turns a regular pilates/fitness class into a cardio infused workout. This is amazing for the entire cardiovascular system as it increases cardiovascular abilities, increases the amount of calories burned in and after class, and speeds up the metabolism.

    It helps build focus and concentration

    A hot room adds intensity. When you’re lunging and squatting with sweat dripping from your face, all you may want to do is stop, but you hone in on your will power, focus, and determination.

    Hot Pilates/Fitness helps build self-belief in what you are capable of achieving and creates a positive mindset that you can take out and apply in your daily life.

    It helps to maintain glowing skin

    When you sweat, you expel dirt and grime from your pores. And sweat also helps to keep skin moist and hydrated. This can be especially helpful in winter when we cover up and use a lot of artificial heating. This means your skin is less likely to experience breakouts or dryness and you’ll develop a natural glow only given by healthy and happy skin.

    Heat is therapeutic

    Heat therapy has been used for centuries. When the body is heated, more blood vessels dilate, which promotes blood flow. Increased blood flow can aid in pain relief. Toxins can be flushed out of injured areas of the body allowing for better range of movement. It’s especially beneficial for lower back pain, muscle aches and pains.

    Hot Pilates warms your muscles up from the get go, it increases your flexibility and also reduces the risk of injury as the muscle is already well warmed up.

    Builds core strength and reduces the risk of back pain

    Pilates works the core specifically and deliberately. Especially some of the deeper core muscles that are impossible to see, but crucial to health and mobility.

    A strong core also helps reduces back pain. When we have a weak core sometimes the lower back muscles can get tight. To support the spine, we need to create strong healthy muscles around it to keep it exactly where it’s meant to be. And the core is one of the most important elements of this. As are the glute muscles (which also get a killer workout in pilates). This is not just about the abdominal muscles that run along the front of the stomach area (“abs”), but the deeper more supportive muscles are also incredibly important. This is why full body movements using the core in the HIIT component of Hot Pilates and a range of different core exercises (not just crunches) is important and beneficial for spine health.
