What sets Pilates apart is its focus on toning the muscles with springs, bands, or your own body weight. Pilates demands intense focus, the way that exercises are done is more important than the exercises themselves. Pilates aims for elegant economy of movement, creating flow through the use of appropriate transitions. Once precision has been achieved, the exercises are intended to flow within and into each other in order to build strength and stamina. In other words, the Pilates technique asserts that physical energy exerted from the center should coordinate movements of the extremities. The stability ball, light weights, and resistance bands are some of the equipment used during the class.
