Your core is the dynamic muscle foundation of your body. The benefits of core strength can enhance proper posture, promote segmental spinal stability, allow for pain free movement, prevent injury and improve breathing technique.

In this video, we are going to show you how to enhance your core stability using the Pilates Method. The Pilates Method of exercise and physical movement is designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body. This video features Certified Pilates Instructors from Pilates Fitness Center: a therapeutic Pilates studio and healthy living program of the Cleveland County Family YMCA.

This video is from the Healthy Living Series I filmed in partnership with Therapy in Motion and the Norman YMCA. Catch more episodes on the Norman YMCA YouTube channel.
