health of our spine is directly proportionate to the age of our body.
If your spine is inflexibly stiff at
30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”
What happens when we get old?
As we age, there are many changes to our bodies such as:
and physical activity could delay or reduce the risk of some diseases and
disabilities that develop as people grow older.
- Degenerative conditions of
the spine and joints
- Spinal stiffness, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis
- Knee pain and weakness
- Loss of balance and proprioception
- Slower metabolism
In Pilates, we
focus on strengthening the core- it’s designed to build core strength of the
body through balancing, stretching and correct breathing techniques, which will
help to protect the spine and reduce the risk of osteoporosis and back
It’s also a safe exercise- it can be
customised and modified for all types of body, fitness level, and any age
There are many
benefits to doing Pilates to help avoid the adverse effects of aging:
Increased balance and stability
Reduce chronic pain
Build bone density and strength.
It’s never too early
to start strengthening your core.
Let’s stay active. Keep your body and spirit young.
