Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and strengthen the deep torso muscles, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain. Pilates is an excellent addition to belly dance in that it conditions the muscles that are necessary to develop a healthy and strong dance posture while deepening body awareness. This awareness of the individual muscle groups in the dancer’s body (particularly in the torso) helps in learning and improving various isolations used in the dance.
