Pilates is different for a few reasons. It is a non-impact and safe workout for any body. During each exercise in your workout, the goal is to work the body as a whole, not just parts, integrating your limbs to your center. This takes good body awareness (which can be learned if you don’t have it). The precision in how you work is also a big difference in Pilates. We do not want you to run through the motions creating the picture of the exercise, we cue you to help you move from your deep stabilizing muscles first thus supporting the bones and joints correctly, creating new muscular patterns, not just relying on your old, existing patterns.
