You know the feeling: You have to sit in the office for long periods, and your back and neck often get tense. Perhaps you also suffer from headaches sometimes? This is where Pilates comes in. The deep-lying muscle groups are strengthened by simple, yet very effective, exercises. This improves your basic constitution, making you more resilient. The focus in this relaxation exercise is on strengthening the support muscles around the spine: the back, pelvic floor and stomach muscles. Tension occurs less frequently when these muscle groups are strengthened: you feel freer, fitter and are therefore more relaxed.
