Pilates is a form of biomechanics, which is a science of the motion of living bodies—especially the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on skeletal structures. Proper alignment of the human skeletal structure is the way to achieve good posture. The concepts in Pilates are what makes this method brilliant, because its aim it to stabilize the integrity of the skeletal structure.
In this App you will learn through Vidoe instruction:
Summary: We all need to learn the rules of good posture. Symmetry in your posture projects health and confidence to others. Strengthening the deepest layers of muscles is the only way to stabilize your skeleton and develop good posture. This program is excellent for athletes, people recovering from injuries or illnesses, and seniors. Welcome yourself to your new body.
Summary: Once you learn about neutral alignment, it’s time to learn how the sections of your body can operate independently. That will decrease tightness and compression that tears and wears your body. We will also discover how to control alignment in a section of your body while moving a different portion of the body, such as stabilizing your pelvis with leg movement, which increases your range of motion.
Summary: By this level you will feel a few inches taller along with visibly noticeable improved posture. You will be ready to challenge the concepts of maintaining stability while gaining mobility. This routine will continue to teach how to recognize over active areas of your body, while strengthening the weaker areas to maintain postural alignment.
Summary: Once you learn the rules of maintaining good posture, it is time to master the game to get to your peak performance. By this level you will definitely feel that you have a new body with a greater sense of control in preventing injury. With this routine you can challenge the ways to strengthen posture against the pull of gravity. Athletes who have a variety of movements, such as swinging, jumping, and rotating will greatly benefit from this program.
I could not get away from how the simplest information transformed my body, so I want to share this experience. We all have the power to journey inward to heal and protect ourselves. That’s where it is. It’s not in your doctor, who is only guided by you. Your doctor is just a guide and not an absolute that knows you better than you do. I was fascinated that my mind could help direct the patterning of my body. There’s a benefit to understanding that the mind and body perform different operations, but that doesn’t mean they operate independently of each other. Moving one’s body correctly is a serious business, and the body needs the help of the mind.
