It has been proven that for most back pain sufferers it is better to exercise than to rest. Pilates is a safe and effective way to take control of your body and reduce pain.

Stress

Cornwall Pilates Plus Exercises can help you reduce your stress.

Pilates breathing exercises focus your mind and increase concentration aiding relaxation. In contrast physical exercises are different. They improve body in form and function. At the same time releasing tension held in muscles.

In pilates only the muscles that are required for a particular activity are engaged while those not needed stay relaxed.

Learning and improving your body awareness results in the ability to relax. Being able to relax reduces fatigue and muscular tension. As a result if you can relax and relieve muscular tension you can deal with stress. Pilates can help you do just that.
