WHAT IT IS
Pilates Fisios® is a technique that corrects bad posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.

- For athletes (golf, tennis, surfing, horseback riding, cycling, football, etc.) to improve sports performance, physical appearance and reduce the risk of injury
Pilates Fisios® is based on six principles:
- Core Stability and Motor Functionality. Core comprises the lumbar spine, the pelvic girdle and the specific musculature that contributes to the maintenance of stability.
- Conscious Breathing. Smooth and full breathing is an integral part of each exercise. According to Pilates “above all, learn how to breathe correctly”. In addition, good breathing oxygenates the blood and improves circulation.
- Accuracy and Alignment. Correct postural alignment during each movement greatly enhances the efficiency of the movement itself and corrects imbalances.
- Concentration. It is required to focus on all parts of the body, in order to control posture during exercise.
- Motor Control through a conscious approach. Good control of the body protects against injuries and accidents. Control is practised and developed gradually.
- Flow and Coordination. The full integration of the above principles while exercising will give you a feeling of ease and lightness while performing any movement.
