Pilates is helpful as we age because it encourages a stronger mind-body connection. This is important to minimize loss of balance and risk of falling. Fall prevention and resisted strength training are helpful in decreasing incidence of osteoporotic fractures. Proper alignment during exercises and activities of daily living helps keep muscles strong and prevent straining our neck and back joints and supportive ligaments. Pilates teaches us to be in control of our body - not at it's mercy!
Pilates Mat, Apparatus, CoreAlign® and MOTR® exercises will help keep your joints mobile, your muscles long and strong, your balance and posture optimal. Every body can benefit from Pilates when your training is structured and tailored to your specific needs and ability. Remember: Motion is Lotion, and conscious competence in movement is the goal! We feel very strongly that in order to get the best benefits from Pilates exercises, your program has to be tailored to your specific needs and ability. This is why we focus on Private and Duet sessions.
