Each Pilates exercise calls on the Body to make smooth transitions from one move into the next to correct it's alignment and perform various exercises with a limited number of repetitions (flow).
The Matworkout is a "system of training" and should incorporate a variety of exercises and some equipment. The routine once learned becomes vigorous and challenging (stamina & concentration).
During the workout the body supplies its own resistance to movement with the use of gravity incorporating controlled breathing for assistance (breath)
Can i still do my aerobic/weight training or preferred Sport?
Of course you can!
Pilates becomes the complementary training to your sport, in other words, pilates enhances your other program giving you more insight on what your body is doing while practicing your other discipline.
Extra training to supplement the Pilates Method is optional and dependant upon the individual
With Pilates classes 2-3 times a week with total focus and awareness, additional training should not be necessary.
