What is the Core?

Source: Burrell Education

Specifically speaking, the “core” consists of the respiratory diaphragm, pelvic floor, the deepest of the abdominal muscles and the tiny muscles between each vertebrae (transervsus abdominus and multifidi, respectively). These muscles function to create intra-abdominal pressure and thus stability for the spine. 

The primary goal of Pilates is to integrate these four muscle to improve core control. That occurs when we are able to improve posture, alignment, breathing, centering and coordination– all of which are principles of Pilates.
