Pilates Counteracts Sitting

No matter how ergonomic and expensive your office furniture may be, sitting in any chair all day long will have a negative effect on your body. Your hip flexors and hamstrings get tighter, your spine compresses with gravity, your head strains forward and your shoulders round forward towards your desk or computer.

Pilates exercises help counter this by moving and lengthening your spine, including neck, opening your chest and strengthening your shoulders, lengthening your hip flexors and strengthening your hip extensors.
