As you practice Pilates at home, it's important to understand that the practice can be modified to suit your individual needs and abilities. Whether you are just starting out or you are an experienced athlete, there are ways to adjust the intensity, range of motion, or number of repetitions of the exercises to provide the right level of challenge for you.
The intensity of the exercises can be modified to suit your individual needs and abilities. For example, if you are finding an exercise too challenging, you can reduce the number of repetitions or take breaks as needed. On the other hand, if you are feeling too comfortable, you can increase the number of repetitions or add in a challenging variation to up the intensity.
The range of motion of the exercises can be modified to suit your individual needs and abilities. For example, if you have limited flexibility, you can reduce the range of motion of the exercises or use props to provide support. As you progress and become more flexible, you can gradually increase the range of motion and challenge yourself more.
Proper form is essential in classical Pilates, and it's important to take the time to learn and practice the correct technique. If you are struggling with an exercise, it's better to reduce the intensity or range of motion and focus on maintaining proper form, rather than trying to push through with improper technique. As you progress and become more skilled, you can gradually increase the intensity and range of motion.
