Principles of Pilates: Part 2 - Centering

Centering: Physically bringing the focus to the center of the body or the "powerhouse". All of the movements of the exercises need to originate from a stable core and require the ability to hold the required stabilizing core muscles at low levels for periods of time.

Energetically, Pilates exercises are sourced from your center. When this is achieved it allows the rest of the body to function efficiently.
