How it works

Pilates exercise focus on increasing strength of the deep muscles surrounding the trunk, pelvis and hips to increase the body’s stability while skiing. Exercises consist of controlled and challenging movements involving use of body weight, upper and lower limb movements and small pieces of equipment. Pilates also involves stretching various muscles of the body to increase flexibility and decrease muscle tension post skiing.

Pilates encourages correct posture and fluency of movement along with greater power production to enhance your overall skiing performance. When you are taught how to activate your deep core in Pilates and become stronger, you can practice engaging the core as you ski to gain the most out of your training.
