🧘‍♀️ Introduction to the Pilates method

Before you start doing the exercises, it is important that you understand the basic principles of Pilates. It's about strengthening and toning your muscles, but also improving your flexibility and balance. These aspects all contribute to a better posture.

📚 Understanding "The Pilates Body" Exercises

In the book "The Pilates Body" different exercises are presented. Each exercise targets specific muscle groups and helps improve your posture. Read the book thoroughly and familiarize yourself with the exercises before performing them.

🔄 Start with the basic exercises

Start with the basic exercises from the book. One of them is the "hundred." Lie flat on your back, lift your legs and move your arms up and down while breathing. This exercise strengthens your abdominal muscles and helps stabilize your spine.

🏋️‍♀️ Increase intensity

Once you have mastered the basic exercises, you can move on to the more advanced ones. One of them is the "swan". You start in a prone position, push yourself up with your arms and arch your back. This exercise strengthens your back muscles and improves your posture.

🔄 Regular practice

To develop better posture, it's important that you practice regularly. Try to do Pilates at least three times a week. You'll notice improvements quickly, but lasting improvement in your posture requires patience and perseverance.

📝 Check your progress

It is helpful to check your progress. You can take pictures of yourself or ask someone to evaluate your posture. Pay attention to changes in your posture and how you feel. This can motivate you to keep going.
