Pilates is well known for helping you correct movement patterns which may be putting stress on your back and joints. It involves synchronising your movement with your breath with a specific pattern of breathing called 'lateral breathing'. Lateral, or intercostal, breathing emphasizes lateral expansion of the ribs whilst maintaining consistent drawing inwards of the deep abdominal muscles during both inhalation and exhalation.
