Stronger Back, Improved Balance and Increased Quality of Life…just from Pilates 

I have been teaching Pilates since 1997.  When I first starting teaching I have to be honest…it was hard to slow down and be more mindful and present with my movements, but I would NEVER stop doing it now as it has transformed my body. I’m leaner, more flexible, have great balance and feel INCREDIBLE.  I want you to feel these benefits too.

image003Pilates continues to gain popularity and has proven benefits according to the Idea’s  June 2014 article “Proven Benefits of Pilates.” I shall share with you a few points and then come and see for yourself by taking Pilates classes offered at Move Your Body Studio.

Increases Flexibility – Practicing Mat Pilates increases lower back, upper body and hamstring flexibility

Better Dynamic Balance – With just 5 weeks of Pilates, adults had better balance and fewer falls

Muscle Endurance – Increased muscle endurance in both the abdominals and low-back endurance just after 8 weeks of classes 3 times per week

More Life Satisfaction – Improvements in physical self-concept, psychological well-being, mood, and sleep improved in just 12 weeks.

Do these work-outs at home….remember though consistency is the Key to Your Healthy Life…so if you are looking for motivation, then make classes a part of your week. Classes are:
