During Pilates, the emphasis is on relaxed, rhythmic breathing while performing smooth, coordinated movements. The movements, based on yoga and dance exercises, are particularly good at strengthening the stomach, thigh, and buttock muscles. The resistances are relatively low so that the exerciser is more likely to develop a sleek appearance rather than a muscular physique. 

Exercise balls can be used for general exercises as well as for Pilates. When Exercise balls are used in Pilates it is called as Pilates exercise ball.
