Musings about Alignment


The aim of Pilates is to help you to move efficiently with minimal wear and tear on your body thus preventing injury. Within class we concentrate on where we put our bodies and how the different parts interrelate. I often talk about neutral pelvis and making sure that your legs are aligned with your hip joints. This is done in order to train your deep postural muscles during class so that out of class this neutral alignment of your skeleton will feel natural and this enable you to move efficiently.
