The first basic principle is alignment, which refers to bringing your body into its ideal posture, where your joints are in their optimal position in relation to each other and your muscles are doing the minimum amount of work to hold them there.

Without good alignment, you risk extra wear and tear on your joints and extra aches in your muscles which may tire from overuse or become weak from lack of use.

When performing our Pilates exercises, we focus on starting in and then holding good form as we move, so as to reinforce the correct alignment of our joints and retrain our muscles to maintain that alignment.
