The Pilates breathing technique is known as lateral thoracic breathing. It helps strengthen the deep muscles of your stomach and back.
You will also learn how to position your hips neutrally, i.e. putting them in a position that protects your back, particularly your natural lumbar curve.
Regularly practising the Pilates method will reduce back pain, slim your stomach and waist, and strengthen your abs. In short, you will feel fitter, stronger and more flexible.
