Core strength

Core. It’s the big word now, and through the amazing sports technology we now have,  we know that for a healthy body a strong core is vital …
But to Joseph Pilates (Pilates Founder) it was already obvious. He was teaching his students as early as 1925 that every movement begins from the centre.
With deep concentration to draw in the belly and keep it held gently and a deep focus on the breath working to expanding the ribs sideways. Not easy, but once practised enough to feel the body work this way, the feeling is powerful and the depth to these core muscle is powerful , and that’s why Joseph Pilates had another name for “the core”, and this is the terminology used in Pilates , “The Powerhouse”.
