The 6 Principles of Pilates: What are they?

Have you heard of the 6 principles of Pilates? There is some discussion as to whether these principles actually came from Joseph Pilates himself or more likely from one of his students, but they are widely regarded as pillars of good Pilates practise. They are:

*Concentration

*Control

*Flow

*Centering

*Precision

*Breathing

Understanding and giving focus to these principles in every exercise that you do, can really help to deepen your Pilates practise, so you get the most from your sessions.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be diving a little bit deeper into each of these principles and look at why they are important, and how you can use them to get more out of each exercise you do.

I have also put them up on the wall in the studio as a reminder, ready for when we start back.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next post xx
