The course of Fletcher Pilates Ped-i-Pul is more extensive. It includes stabilisation and various range of motion exercises which challenge movement patterns. The Ped-i-Pul is known to provide an ideal standing assessment tool as a Pilates exercise as well as a physical therapy practice.
The Ped-i-Pul consists of a base platform and an upright pole with two springs which have handles. A person exercising on a Ped-i-Pul stands on the platform and centres against the pole. S/he is then supposed to use the handles attached to the spring to do various exercises.
Just like most other Pilates equipment, the Ped-i-Pul too is a complete genius. It has the ability to challenge the body and create efficient and balanced movement. Both simple and advanced exercises can be performed on the Ped-i-Pul.
Some basic benefits of Ped-i-Pul include improving the standing alignment and strengthening the muscles around shoulder girdle. It also helps in fine tuning Pilates breathing and is great for strengthening of core muscles.
In the video, Yasmin illustrates a couple of exercises which can be helpful in improving your posture and alignment.

As an exercise regime, many celebrities today are swearing by the benefits of Pilates. From Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan, many include Pilates in their fitness regime and the reasons are numerous.
Pilates help in improving flexibility, balancing muscular strength on both sides of the body, increasing muscle strength, toning of abdominal, lower back, hips and butt muscles, improving posture, improving spine stabilisation, rehabilitating or preventing injuries related to muscle imbalances, relaxing shoulders, neck and upper back and improving physical coordination and balance.
Practicing Pilates regularly can help in relaxing your shoulders, neck and upper back as well. They enable safer rehabilitation of spinal injuries and joints and prevent musculoskeletal injuries. You will experience increased lung capacity and blood circulation through deep breathing which is involved in Pilates movements. A person tends to become more aware of his/her own body and is able to manage stress and relax in a more efficient way.
The additional benefit of doing Pilates is that it is meant for everyone. Exercises can be done by using your own body weight or with the help of various other pieces of equipment.
