What makes Pilates at Anchor different?
We All Have Unique Needs…
We know that whether or not you tell us, we all suffer.
- Whether it be achy joints or a torn labrum, chronic low back pain or recent knee replacement, movement is essential.
- Albeit exciting, having a child can do a number on your body and reconnecting with your core is paramount.
- Or maybe you’re the person who is always stiff and tight everywhere. This is a common complaint but doesn’t have to keep us from moving. These are examples of what our clients normally report. The point is, most problems can be addressed through movement.
What is Pilates? How does someone benefit from Pilates?
In his book, Return to Life through Contrology, Joseph Pilates (creator of the technique) presents his method as the art of controlled movements. He envisioned it serving as a therapeutic workout that didn’t feel like therapy.
When practiced with consistency, Pilates improves:
- Builds Strength
- Develops Control
- Improves Endurance
It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance.
Who can do Pilates?
Everyone and anyone is capable of doing pilates. Male, female, young, old, athlete or not-so-athletic. The beauty of the Pilates system is that is does not alienate any particular person.
With that said, Pilates exercises can be modified for any ability.
Utilizing the instructor and practitioner’s specific goals and/or limitations, pilates programs are designed around each individual’s needs. Likewise, intensity can be increased over time as the body adapts itself to the exercises.
The overarching goal with Clinical Pilates, as with all movement interventions, is to continuously challenge our bodies to perform better.
Anchor Wellness’s Certified Pilates Instructors have a niche practice of working alongside Physical Therapists to individualize programs to meet your specific needs.
