Whoever you are and whatever you enjoy doing, there are really no downsides to improving your posture and core strength, which are just two of the many benefits Pilates brings.
However, there are many things you can do to improve your health and fitness, and limited time to do it. To convince you of the advantages of practice, whether you are a runner, office worker or athlete, we hand over Pilates teacher Jess Ellmer, who also provided a top exercise for each group.  Pilates Benefits for Office Workers
Your lower back may suffer from sitting at your desk for too long. Pilates has been shown to relieve pain with small, precise movements that support your spine.
If tensions and tensions creep into your neck and shoulders for hours on the computer, regular breaks to open your chest can make a difference to your posture and relieve your pain.
Top exercise to try: Breast Opener
Lie on your side and put your hands behind your head and your elbows around your ears. Bring your legs up and bend them so that they form a 90 ° angle on your hips and knees. Slowly open your upper elbow and let your body follow. Keep your knees together as your chest opens to the ceiling. Take three deep breaths and then return to the starting position.
The Benefits of Pilates for Athletes
When you are sweaty in your strength or HIIT sessions, you can become breathless. With Pilates, you can achieve deeper breathing and support your pelvic floor and diaphragm so you can breathe more efficiently.
Take your time to get out of your combat or flight mode (personable) after training. The body produces more adrenaline. In your rest and relaxation mode (parasympathetic) you can concentrate, make better decisions and become less reactive and calmer.
Try this Pilates breathing exercise to calm your nervous system.
Top exercise to try: Breathing
Find a comfortable position to lie down, support your head with a pillow, and breathe in ten times through your nose and out through your mouth. Hold your hands on your rib cage and feel the ribs expand as you inhale and let your body “fall” as you exhale ̵
The Benefits of Pilates for Runners
If you want to be an efficient runner, you need to be aware of your posture. Pilates draws your attention to your body and connects your mind with your movement. Your back and joint health can be affected by the effects of running. Pilates is an excellent way to strengthen your abdominal wall and support the structure of your skeleton.
Top exercise: Buttock Bridge  Lie on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat. Imagine you have a dial on your pelvis. Twelve o'clock is the highest point – your navel – and six o'clock is the lowest point – your pubic bone.
Gently begin to tilt your pelvis toward 12 and push through your feet to raise your hips. In order to achieve the least possible tension in the neck, slowly bring your spine back onto the floor, vertebra by vertebra. You should feel it in your butt and on the back of your legs. If you feel stress in your lower back, you may have raised your hips too high.
