The second principle of Body Control Pilates is breathing and is described as
“Breath is the essence of life itself. It is a movement process in its own right and therefore has great bearing on teh eddiciency of each movment performed. Synchronising the breath to movements is a key part of Pilates. Like any other movement in Pilates, we are looking for precision and efficiency. Breathing is no different: learning how to breathe more effectively within movement helps both the mind and body to relax, recharge and focus.”
