HOW DOES PILATES WORK?

 

Do you suffer from achy joints?

Does your back feel stiff?

Do you find your balance is not what it used to be?

Do daily activities sometimes seem difficult?

 

If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions then maybe a Pilates Class specifically designed for SENIORS could help. 

The classes focus on improving:

 

Joint Mobility

As we age, degenerative changes can occur causing stiffness in the joints resulting in reduced range of movement and difficulty in performing everyday activities. 

 

Pilates stimulates the production of fluid which lubricates the joints thus creating easier movement at the joint.

 

Flexibility of the Spine

Each of the bones in the spine are separated by a spongy cushion called a disc. These discs serve as the spine’s shock-absorbing system. They are filled with fluid but over time they dehydrate causing stiffness and restrictions in the spine. 

 

Pilates hydrates the discs and enables them to become efficient shock absorbers allowing for more movement and flexibility throughout the spine.   

 

Balance

There are many reasons why balance declines as we age but it may just be natural deterioration in soft tissue and muscle or perhaps years of poor posture. 

 

Pilates realigns and rebalances the body head to toe.  

 

Overall Strength

Just as bone density decreases with age, so does muscle mass which is associated with muscle weakness. This can make carrying out daily activities (such as climbing stairs) more difficult. 

 

Pilates helps to build overall strength and endurance enabling you to perform everyday tasks more easily.
