Modern-day life is not all that supportive of a pain-free body.
We all sit for too many hours at our computers, drive instead of walk, spend too much time on our phones, live a more sedentary lifestyle, and consequently, we suffer from body pain and tension.
Pilates is a powerful antidote to these modern day woes!
Pilates focus on the stabilizing core muscles of the torso helps to support the spine and surrounding major muscle groups. This helps to protect the vertebrae, ligaments and discs that can often suffer as a result of repetitive trauma and habitual patterns of movement.
Studies have shown that those with chronic lower back pain who practiced Pilates for just four weeks experienced more relief than those who visited a physician and other specialists.
A strong core goes a long way towards a good posture. Pilates encourages you to utilize your core muscles, and also focus on proper alignment in the body.
A good posture doesn’t just look physically appealing, it offers a safe and steady base to move through life. A good posture sets you up for greater ease and grace in daily movements, as well as supporting your body as it ages.
From helping to reduce back and neck pain, to easing tension in the body and preventing injury. A good posture is something that will carry you through life, literally!
A key focus in Pilates is maintaining good alignment and balance through all the exercises. This creates a strong back, glutes, and abs which work together to form a perfect posture.
