One of the primary objectives of the Pilates method is increasing adaptability – the body’s ability to adjust and respond to challenges that it meets; a skill that comes in handy when cruising down the mountainside on your mode of choice.  Your squats, lunges and balance exercises are important prep for the winter season, but try adding these five basic Pilates exercises to your usual regimen. They will help you to move better and more efficiently in your regular exercises, and on the slopes.
