Everyone knows that playing sports on a regular basis is excellent for your health. Our times are filled with jobs that require us to sit for long hours every day, which is why we need to find a physical activity that will allow the muscles of the body to work. It is not always easy to take up sport when you haven't played a single sport in recent years. Plus, you might not like a sweat, which is why pilates is for you. By practicing this sport in the Montpellier Pilates Studio for example, you will keep in shape, but most of all, you will increase your self-confidence.
A sport accessible to all
Regardless of your physical condition, you are quite capable of getting into pilates. The key is to start slowly, with simple exercises. Your body will need to build up muscles, especially in the back and pelvis, so that you can practice more complex positions. Everyone can get started in pilates, but you still need a good teacher. While once you become a regular practitioner you will be able to perform most of the positions at home, it is best to start under the watchful eye of a teacher.
Some positions are not obvious, and improper practice can lead to injury, which is true with all sports. The ideal is to go to a private or group class depending on your preference and your means, in order to receive wise advice from athletes accustomed to training new pilates enthusiasts.
Positions that boost self-confidence
We often compare the effects of pilates to those of yoga. Indeed, the goal is to rebalance the energies circulating in the body, and in the more or less short term, this will influence your self-confidence. By choosing simple postures to start, you will gain a foothold in this sport and develop more quickly afterwards.
The positions worked will give you strength on a mental level, when you put the chest forward, that you anchor your feet in the ground or that you look straight ahead, it tends to boost your ego.
Learning that allows rapid development
The basic stances are easy to learn, which means you will quickly master them. The fact of not being confronted with recurring failures is going to be excellent for your self-confidence, moreover, you will be able to evolve quickly thanks to the advice of your pilates teacher.
Finally, note that pilates will allow you to work on your breathing, and above all, to reduce your stress. As we know, the latter tends to attack the esteem that we may have for ourselves, which is why it is important to find a way to make it disappear or at least reduce it. The practice of pilates will become your privileged moment during which you will refocus on yourself and will manage to find a certain inner balance.
