Mat Pilates involves performing Pilate’s exercises on the floor using a Pilates, or yoga mat. Mat Pilates exercises are performed in a slow, controlled, precise manner and require an intense concentration. These exercises help strengthen the body’s core by developing pelvic and scapula stability, and abdominal control, using focused breathing patterns. The main fitness goals of a mat Pilate’s program include improved flexibility, muscle tone, body balance, spinal support, low back health, sports performance, and body-mind awareness.
