Our increasingly sedentary lifestyles and the continuous onslaught of stress means that the majority of the population is walking around with a dysfunctional ‘core’. When this central, stabilizing unit, doesn’t work as it should, we get repeated and chronic aches pains. Pilates works on retraining and strengthening the entire core musculature.
Our home-based Pilates in Cape Town is a fully integrated whole body exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s. It emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, correct posture and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement. Unlike some other forms of exercise, Pilates doesn’t overdevelop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole, including the breath and the mind.
Homefit’s Pilates in Cape Town promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion. Pilates is popular in rehabilitative scenarios as well as popular with highly skilled athletes.
“To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limits of our ability” Joseph Pilates
