Pilates is excellent for your body as you can always find exercices suitable and challenging depending on your goal and your body.Pilates will help you improve in other daily routines and sports as it pay so much focus on posture and body control.
Pilates works on smaller stabilizing muscles and on your core and shoulders, which helps improve your posture.
Pilates can make you taller in the sense that you work on your posture and you can expect to begin to cruise through life with better body control.
You want to wear clothes that allow you to fully focus on your workout. Wear a jumpsuit or something tight with a slight hug feel around your body. Something that you do not need to drag into place, or that is falling over your head, when your are twisting and turning.
How often you do Pilates depends on what your goal is with the Pilates training.
If you should practice Pilates everyday depends on what your goal with the training is. It is good to consult with a Pilates instructor.
Pilates can be done everyday but it is suggested to vary the intensity, length of the workout and type of Pilates exercice if doing it everyday. Doing it everyday or not, really depends on your goal with the workout and what else you are doing or not doing or if you have any injuries.
Pilates is necessarily not better than Yoga. The two works with different focus. Pilates may be understood as more of a structured form of workout focusing on strengthening core, pelvic stability and other stabilizing muscles of the body.
