Progressive Pilates with Stretchband: a great gift idea

Progressive Pilates with Stretchband


The Pilates Method is a movement-based physical conditioning system that improves posture, alignment, breathing, and muscle control.

This unique approach to exercise was developed in the early 1900 by German-born Joseph H. Pilates. His philosophy of movement and strengthening has attracted people from all walks of life over the past century.

The repertoire of floor exercises was originally developed for the purpose of full-body conditioning. Jennifer Pohlman, author of Simply Pilates, Simply Ball with Pilates Principles, and More Simply Pilates, will now show you how integrating a stretchband into a Pilates floor workout can simulate the resistance usually achieved on Pilates equipment.
