1. Your Posture
Are you one to walk around slouching your shoulders all the time? Or maybe you were told that you could possibly have scoliosis in the future? Well Pilates help line your spine correctly. Having a nice posture improves your overall appearance. It makes you look more professional. It makes you look more confident and youthful when your back aligns straight. Not to mention, it feels better for your back because your shoulders are not hunched over causing pain in your trapezius and mid back.
