Pilates is a widely accepted and utilized method for promoting health and proper movement patterns through the development of balanced muscles, joint alignment, and core control.

However, when the principles of functional anatomy - anatomy based on how humans are designed to stabilize and move - are not considered during exercise application, the result can be muscle imbalances, chronic tightness, and even pain.

This book reveals the missing connection between functional anatomy of the core and its application during fundamental core exercises in Pilates.

By integrating the six fundamental principles of the Pilates method with a descriptive application of functional core anatomy, the authors illustrate clearly how to:

  • achieve the alignment, breathing, and control required for developing optimal posture and movement;
  • suppress non-optimal habits that relate to common postural dysfunction, muscle imbalances, and chronic tightness;
  • incorporate optimal alignment, breathing, and control into the fundamental Pilates principles in order to develop a more stable core and eliminate the risks of common injuries while accomplishing one's health and fitness goals.
