Pilates is a low-impact method of fitness training designed to balance the strength and length of opposing muscles as well as optimize muscular sequencing. A majority of repetitive back strain is due to poor posture, poor movement patterns (including compensatory) and muscle imbalances.We work towards restoring the natural curves in the spine, which have often altered due to injury, work habits and genetics.
Other Benefits of Pilates:
- Correction of Postural Imbalances: Kyphosis, Scoliosis, Lordosis
- Reduce Back Pain
- Improved Joint Strength and Range of Motion
- Improve Core-Strength and Balance
- Improved Spine Flexibility
- Heightened Body Awareness
- Better Concentration at Work and School
- Long Lean Muscles
- Improved Self-Confidence
At Lifemoves® we teach the STOTT® method to take you through a systematic and progressive series of exercises that will help you reconnect your mind to your body.
Pilates will help strengthen the weaker muscles (such as upper-back, deeper abdominals, lower back and hip stabilizers) while stretching out tighter muscles (chest and hip flexors).
During the past year we have also found that a combination of Fascial Stretch Therapy™ with Pilates is quite beneficial and effective.
