This helps improve your stability, flexibility, stamina, posture and immunity." Not only this; but Pilates also helped Katrina Kaif with her dance. In addition, the exercise also helps in strengthening the core. It removes the lactic acid from the body which helps in reducing stress levels. Pilates is something which helps you in all your forms of training, the actress added.
Priety Zinta in her Instagram video said, Pilates is the best thing you can ever do for your body. It is amazing for balance and can also help prevent injuries. Pilates also helps in achieving those long lean legs and a toned body.
Pilates is much more than just an exercise regime. It is a low-impact exercise that focuses on your alignment, flexibility and posture. It is a full-body workout which primarily targets your core. Being a high-intensity workout it focuses on all the body parts and is great if you want to lose weight. By emphasizing on proper breathing, spinal and pelvic alignment and concentration on smooth, flowing movement, you come in tune with your body. This means, you actually learn how to control its movement. Proper breathing is extremely essential while doing Pilates. It helps you execute movements with maximum strength and efficiency. Last but not the least, breathing properly can reduce your stress.
