Pilates is a dynamic physical exercise based on the teachings of Joseph Pilates. The training is structured on several key values: control, breathing, centering, precision and fluid motion. By combining these five principles, an extremely beneficial practice is created, influencing many elements of the body. From improving posture, toning, stretching and shaping muscles, relieving back pain and muscle tension, balancing body and mind – pilates works towards strengthening the body from head to toe. Regular practice of hot Pilates will build lean muscles and strengthen the core – holding everything in place and allowing the body to have proper alignment and posture.
Hot pilates is practiced at a moderate temperature of about 34 degrees. Practicing in this heated environment allows the body to increase its range of movement by improving flexibility and raising the heart rate, making the class a highly aerobic and effective workout.
