Leonardo Da Vinci is known for many things: his paintings and inventions. However, he also emphasized on the importance of taking care of the body. He named it copore sano mensa sano (healthy body, healthy mind). Nowadays, people have become so enmeshed in routine that they tend to neglect their bodies to their disadvantage.
A neglected body is a walking time-bomb. We are more vulnerable to disease now more than any other time in our history as human beings. For this reason, people are being encouraged to exercise regularly to stay healthy.
With so many exercise programs in the market, it is very hard to choose a good program. Some are extremely strenuous and some are a waste of money. Some might even do more harm than good.
If you are looking for a program that will check all the right boxes for you, Pilates fits the bill.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise that borrows from yoga, calisthenics and ballet. Sessions last from between 45-90 minutes and the emphasis is on low repetitions.
It was developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates as a form of therapy for injured athletes and dancers. Pilates was a way of staying fit and easing them back into form.
Over the years, the Pilates method has been adopted the world over with thousands of studios offering it.
