One of the approaches we use is pilates. The reason we like pilates is that it involves a holistic approach to movement. Not only does it teach you to keep your core strong, which is what all of us need, it also teaches effective movement patterns that allow you to learn to use your body in the most efficient way possible. One of the ways we look at how your body moves is by keying in on five STOTT Pilates movement principles. These tell us how well you control movement from both a muscular and a neuromuscular perspective.
We look for five key patterns:
- How you breath when you move
- How you hold your rib cage
- How you hold your pelvis and its alignment
- How your shoulder blades find a home on your back
- Your head and neck position
Our aim is to work towards optimal musculoskeletal performance through strength, flexibility and endurance. Come let us share our success with you and return you to what you love, again!
