Pilates & Yoga
Yoga and Pilates may be the fitness world’s most popular exercises. A bit less frantic than intense interval training workouts such as CrossFit, yoga and Pilates offer a mind/body alternative and a way to cross-train that enhances the body.
Many of our clients who are finishing up the rehab process, including athletes, often find that choosing between the two can be confusing. Which one better suits the body’s needs or fitness levels? There are similarities; both are mind/body disciplines, have specific breathing techniques, and incorporate resistance for toning muscles. At Staszak Physical Therapy & Wellness Center, we incorporate Pilates and yoga in a rehab setting. Yoga and Pilates are slow, personal routines done in the clinic, but they can also be practiced through community classes and one-on-one training or in the privacy of your own home.
Both disciplines help with restoring breath and posture, and can be beneficial for beginners, high-level athletes, or someone wanting to change their lifestyle after discovering a health concern such as high blood pressure or diabetes. At Staszak Physical Therapy & Wellness Center, we are able to help you choose the path towards wellness that best addresses your lifestyle and goals.
