THE BEST AND SAFEST FORM OF FITNESS FOR BACK PAIN, KNEE PAIN, HIP AND SHOULDER PAIN.

The Pilates Mat classes attract clients for a whole host of reasons whether that be back pain, shoulder pain, neck tension , strengthening up the hips, knees or improve flexibility and Posture. The list could go and on and that’s because Pilates is the number one referral fitness regime for doctors, consultants, physiotherapists and Osteopaths to refer their patients to.

You may of been told to “strengthen your core” or even lose weight from your Doctor as the extra weight is what’s causing your back or knee pain in the first place. Pilates can help with a whole host of problems and here’s how the method will help you.

  • Firstly you will learn how to breathe properly and tighten and lift the core muscles so that your abdominals begin to do more work than your back muscles.

  • Pilates is the best way to mobilise your spine. EVERY SINGLE VERTEBRAE including your neck

  • Pilates works with your alignment, realigning any underused muscles by firstly bringing it to your attention and then using specific exercises to strengthen the week or lazy muscles.

  • Pilates is the safest way to strengthen up the area surrounding your joints as the movements can be very isolating which focuses on the correct function of the muscle during its work stage.

PILATES CLASS SIZE

The Pilates group mat classes have upto 12 people in every session allowing ample space around you to fully stretch out your tight muscles. This group size is easy for me to teach by correcting and realigning your legs , arms or spine should you require correcting. As a Pilates teacher I know how important it is to be corrected by re-positioning your body on the mat so that your body may rebalance uneven sides or muscles.

 

WHAT TO WEAR FOR A PILATES MAT CLASS

WOMAN - should be comfortable in leggings and a vest or T-shirt. There is no need to buy anything special to wear for a Pilates Mat Class when you are starting out, you just need to be comfortable, able to move your legs and arms fully. There are no shoes worn during a Pilates class as we like to feel grounded and connected with bare feet. Some clients buy special socks that have grips on the bottom. Please avoid hoodies though as these tend to gather round our neck and restrict rolling exercises.

MEN -There are  Men currently attending all of the Pilates classes held in Washington and they generally wear , long shorts , jogging pants and T-shirt.
