The Internet is full of Pilates workouts, and many fitness and yoga apps also offer Pilates content. It’s very likely you’ve tried some of these options, but maybe were left a bit confused. Did I do this right? It felt kind of easy?
If the exercises felt easy, most likely the technique was not explained properly. When you perform Pilates exercises correctly, you reallyfeel it in your core. In Pilates we engage our deeper core muscles (TVA and lumbar multifidus) and our pelvic floor, all while adopting a certain breathing technique (lateral thoracic breathing). In addition, we want to make sure our spine is aligned correctly. You won’t intuitively know how to do these just because the teacher on YouTube says “Engage your core”! You need taught how to. If an exercise you tried felt easy, the odds are you didn't quite know how to engage the muscles Pilates wants to strengthen.
