Mat Pilates
Mat Pilates is a great way to stretch and strengthen the body, to keep it healthy and injury free. Mat Pilates exercises are extremely functional and focus on strengthening the core or "powerhouse", as Joseph Pilates called it. Joseph Pilates developed this exercise methodology in the early 1900s, borrowing from disciplines such as dance, yoga and classic calisthenics. The benefit of Mat Pilates is that it can be done anywhere and you can take your favourite exercises with you wherever you go. For those who suffer from back pain, Mat Pilates techniques are know to both prevent and reduce these back issues.
