The authors apply current research on neuroplasticity, the brain's capacity to reorganize itself by developing new neuronal connections, and on the function of fascia, the matrix-like connective tissue of the body, to explain the six fundamental principles of Pilates—Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breath, and Flow. They show how to avoid muscle imbalances, chronic tightness, and pain by incorporating the principles of functional anatomy during exercise.
Readers learn how to:
• Achieve the alignment, breathing, and control required for developing optimal posture and movement
• Alleviate non-optimal habits that relate to common postural dysfunction, muscle imbalances, and chronic tightness
• Integrate the fundamental Pilates exercises in order to develop a more stable core and eliminate the risks of common injuries while accomplishing one's health and fitness goals
