What is Pilates?

In Pilates by Larissa Mills

Pilates is a form of core exercise that strengthens the transverse abdominis and pelvic floor. By working these muscles, the core strengthens, changing fat into muscle and toning all the muscles that make up the core. Posture changes and low back disappears.
