How is the breathing of the Pilates method
The first lesson of Pilates is to learn to breathe properly and center. This means that the person needs to perform the most difficult part of the exercise, namely, the contraction during expiration, when she is releasing the air from the lungs. When the body is returning to its starting position it must inspire, allowing the entry of air in the lungs. It is not allowed to stay in apnea, or no breathing in any time of the year.
You can practice this breathing lying down, 10 times in a row, while you lift the arm from the floor. So, you should:
- Make the air enter the lungs and when you start to release the air to raise the arm from the ground and
- Download the arm while you breathe in, allowing the entry of air.
This breathing requires concentration and is required in all the exercises of the Pilates method and is more effective because it allows the best oxygenation of the brain, the muscle that is being worked on and all of the tissues of the body, requiring the person to focus all their attention on breathing and muscle contraction, which makes it more attention to exercise, with less risk of injury.

And that is exactly why you require so much coordination that Pilates exercises are so beneficial for mind and body.
With this type of exercise there is less chance of offsetting muscle and therefore the risk of injuries in the classes is much smaller.
