Always start with the basics of Pilates: The basics are the foundations of Pilates. Never hesitate on going back to the basics even if you've reached your advanced levels.

Always listen to your body: If something hurts then you're definitely doing something wrong - you should never feel pain while doing Pilates.

Have your form corrected from time to time: Pilates when done correctly offers major fitness benefits like spinal mobility, better posture, flexibility and body awareness.

Maintain your neutral and flat spine wherever required.

Complete your sets even with a break in between if tired.
