How to practice Water Pilates

Water Pilates in a nutshell are Pilates exercises and movements adapted for the water. Water’s buoyancy, viscosity and hydrostatic pressure increase the body’s range of motion while stabilizing the core muscles and developing breathing.

The water environment makes easier to increase flexibility, challenges your body to maintain core stabilization, improve spine alignment and balance.

Who can practice it?
