2. Pilates is LOW IMPACT.
It strengthens your body without stressing and straining your joints. Low impact doesn't mean easy - you'll still feel your whole body working.
3. Pilates is MINDFUL
We all know the importance of taking time to be in the here and now for mental health. Pilates involves thinking about how you're moving and connecting to your body, helping to reduce stress.
