There are so many benefits to Pilates! Most of the exercises are a combination of stretch and strengthening, which helps balancing the body and improve the body posture. Furthermore Pilates is very focused on core work and will often help people suffering from backpain. This particular program is a bit more focused on the abs, but remember Pilates is always for the whole body.
At the photo you can see my little baby boy, looking very happy. He is like that most of the time, but why is that? I can only guess, but I think it is pretty basic.
He needs enough sleep, and to not get too hungry. Science backs that up; these two factors have a big impact on happiness.
His basic psychological needs must be covered as well, which include feeling loved and secure. Furthermore he is always active, playing with his toes and rolling over. He challenges himself and keeps improving new skills, he explores new things, toys, foods etc.
All these factors play an important role in what makes him and ALL of us happy!
