Pilates for Seniors
Pilates is a form of mind-body exercise designed to help workout your core muscles, although you can work other muscles as well with this popular form of exercise. In a study reported by the National Library of Medicine, Pilates was shown to improve functional autonomy, static balance and quality of life in elderly women. In addition, Pilates was also shown to improve dynamic balance, flexibility and strength in a study of people 65 years and older.
Improve Muscle Tone and Balance!
While most people think they need to attend an actual Pilates class, it’s not necessary as you can do many of the exercises in your own home. Pilates can be done with or without equipment. Pilates uses flowing movement patterns that are precise and a steady while focusing on controlled breathing. The exercise is designed to improve muscle tone vs. actually building muscle, leading to improved balance, stability, posture, and mobility. Get started with Pilates today and start seeing results!
