Thus, the Pilates lessons help improve blood flow, further optimization of metabolism, teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement.

Is this a miracle? Not at all. This system is safe and easy to perform using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel you very best.

Let us see at some exercises. First, you should follow the way you breathe. Thus, the first exercise should be devoted to breathe control. Lie on your back, bend your legs in knees, put your hands on your stomach palms beneath or one onto another. Count to four and slowly blow your stomach as much as possible, then slowly take it in, trying to «touch the floor» with the anterior abdomen. Breathe deeply. Then we speed up a little, inhaling and exhaling counting to two. Without changing a posture, put a hand over the head. Inhale for «2», and inhaling, you lift your upper torso breaking your head and shoulders away off the floor. Fix the posture and then inhale and exhale and repeat the exercise for several times. Now lift your legs bent in knees under the straight angle with the shin parallel to the floor. Hold your thighs from the back and lift your upper torso and lower the thighs (straighten your hands) and perform three tensing movements towards.
