According to some of those who practice Pilates, the central goal is to create a bond between the mind and body. Similar to yoga , Pilates teaches body awareness, good posture, and transforms the way your body looks without bulking. Today’s athletes use Pilates for strength, flexibility, and injury prevention while Hollywood celebrities use it for slim and slender physiques.
