Who should be doing Pilates? Pilates is for anyone and everyone! Women, men, teens, seniors, expectant moms, people recovering from injuries, athletes, dancers, cyclists, runners, golfers, and the list goes on. Pilates benefits all.
Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a toned abdomen. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement.
One of the primary benefits of Pilates is how it affects everything else one does. One learns not only the specific exercises, but a philosophy for the correct use of muscles, joints, and breath during basic life movement. As students develop this body awareness, participation in other strenuous activities are less likely to cause injury. In short, Pilates students will actually get more benefit out of that activity because of the application of the principals they have learned through the Pilates method.
Pilates is an excellent way to rehabilitate injuries and conditions including; back pain, all kinds of disc dysfunction, neck issues, knee injuries, knee instability and pain, hip injuries, hip replacements, ankle instability, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff issues, scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, SI joint problems, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and more!
