Pilates Fundamentals are defined as full control of the following elements of movement:
Breath: 3-Dimensional, full, controlled Breath
Core Control: The Core is truly the anatomical, architectural cornerstone of all of our movement and alignments. Critical.
Spinal Elongation: Decompression of the spinal architecture that arises in Modern Life.
Control: Knowing where and when to align yourself for optimal, injury-free movement.
Differentiations: Differentiation, control of the joints, is essential to health, fitness, control and injury prevention.
Fluidity: The ultimate integration of all biomechanical amplitude so that we can life optimally in our bodies.
Principles of Biotensegrity apply to the Fascia so that it encompasses many diverse views and principles of biomechanics and more.
