Learn about how the Power of Pilates can not only strengthen your core, but also help rewire your brain and potentially slow down or even reverse the inevitable loss of brain activity. Do you understand the difference between Yoga and Pilates? No neither did I but I do now. Definitely worth a 20 minute listen.
Welcome to an interview based podcast on the Power of Pilates with Heba Abdel Gawad head of Education at BodyHack the Middle East’s leading fitness education provider. Heba’s speciality isn’t just Pilates, it’s NEURO Pilates.
Pilates focuses on moving your body while keeping your core still, whereas yoga focuses more on stretching and then holding poses to increase strength.
Did you know there are different types of Pilates? Mat, Reformer and Barre?
