Monthly Focus – July

Body Balance Institute Blog

Precision, or exactness of movement is what sets Pilates apart from other exercise systems. Precision requires focus, awareness and controlled action. Every movement has a purpose and every cue or instruction is important to the success of the movement. In Pilates, we use fewer repetitions that are executed with control and precision, performing one or a few perfect movement rather than several haphazard ones. The end result is efficient, graceful movement that appears effortless.

Concentrate on the correct movements each time you exercise, lest you do them improperly and thus lose all vital benefits. Correctly executed and mastered to the point of subconscious reaction, these exercises will reflect grace and balance in your routine activities.
