If you’re like most people living the modern day lifestyle in an office-driven world, you might spend up to 8-10 hours a day sitting down. With TV, computers and other devices invading the home, the effect on your posture and bone health can be devastating. Everyone understands that spending their waking hours sitting down in front of a screen will damage their health, so what can they do to reverse the effects?

Feel Good Again Through Improved Flexibility

Being flexible, strong and functionally mobile is a feeling that changes your life. Apart from just feeling great, a healthy range of motion in your major joints and postural strength can prevent injury when performing physical exercise, including household chores.

How Can Pilates Undo The Damage

The remedy is simple: move more, sit less. Pilates is an exercise science based regimen of systematic, applied movement that can assist you in both loosening up some and strengthening other muscles by activating and stretching them with the purpose of building balanced functional strength. Pilates can target the deep core and postural abdominal muscles to straighten out the damage done by sitting, which is often exacerbated by a weak core. Pilates provides both length and strength to the entire spine, thus enhancing this beautifully designed natural mechanism’s ability to create real core stability.

Pilates uses physical apparatus to specifically target important postural muscles that are shortened and atrophied by sitting for extended periods. Pilates apparatus, guided by an experienced, qualified Pilates instructor, are specifically designed to avoid aggravating pain points by supporting and relaxing part of the body while targeting other parts.

Many Pilates client success stories have shown that just a few minutes a day of the right Pilates exercises, prescribed by the a qualified and experienced Pilates instructor can unlock tightening muscles and iron out curvatures in the spine, to bring back pain free mobility.
