How can pilates help with core strength?

Pilates focuses on developing core strength and stability as a foundation for functional movement.

Borrowing a lot of moves from dance therapy, Pilates changes the way people use their bodies by building core strength and teaching movement that originates in the core. Students of Pilates exercise begin to move more gracefully, with better posture and more fluidity. Pilates tones up the torso, training the abdominal muscles, hips, buttocks and lower back to work together as the body's "powerhouse."
