But if you are looking for an exercise routine that focuses especially on toning your muscles and strengthening them, you need to look into the world of Pilates.

Improves The Functioning of Your Nervous System
The workout movements in Pilates target specific areas of your body and brain alike when signals are sent through the spinal cord to fibers in the muscles. This ensures a better to-and-fro communication from the brain to the body, keeping the nervous system very healthy.
Helps Control Stress
Aren’t we desi people almost always calling out for stressors? Whether it’s a saas bahu or miyaan biwi ka masla or just anything in general, we are simply unable to keep our calm. So, for all those of you think just a tad bit too much, Pilates is just what you need. Since yoga is the father of Pilates itself, its stress relieving characteristics are also somewhat similar. The physical tension that the tricky movements in Pilates builds is coped up with a steady breathing pattern that trains your body and mind to deal with stressors in general. And don’t forget the happy hormones aka Endorphins that it release into your body.
It Eases Back Muscles
Are you tired of trying all of Zubaida Apa ke totkay for that silly back-ache that just doesn’t seem to go away? Try Pilates! Since it works on the ab area, the lower back is automatically in action.
Helps You Concentrate Better
Pilates is basically all about steady breathing patterns as you move your body in the required positions. It’s all about inhaling at the right position and letting it go at the specific ones. When you are so focused on all of this during your Pilates workout routine, it puts you off track from the worries of the world for a while and helps boost your mind’s level of concentration immediately.
