  1. Pilates (pronounced: puh-lah-teez) improves your mental and physical well-being, increases flexibility, and strengthens muscles. Pilates uses controlled movements in the form of mat exercises or equipment to tone and strengthen the body.
    In addition, pilates increases circulation and helps to sculpt the body and strengthen the body’s “core” or “powerhouse” (torso). People who do pilates regularly feel they have better posture, are less prone to injury, and experience better overall health.
    The great thing about pilates is that just about everyone – from couch potatoes to fitness buffs – can do it. Because pilates has gained lots of attention recently, there are lots of classes available. You’ll probably find that many fitness centers and YMCAs offer pilates classes, mostly in mat work. Some pilates instructors also offer private classes that can be purchased class by class or in blocks of classes; these may combine mat work with machine work. If your health club makes pilates machines available to members, make sure there’s a qualified pilates instructor on duty to teach and supervise you during the exercises.

    Before you begin any type of exercise program, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor, especially if you have a health problem.

  2. Pilates is a great form of excercise for toning your core muscles (abs/back) and also your other stability muscles like gluts (butt, as you put it 🙂 ).
    there are lots of sites which show exercises – http://www.about.com has a great write up.

    however, it’s best to do 2-3 sessions with a qualified professional because these exercises if done wrong might do more harm than good.

    best of luck,
