4 Reasons To Take Up Pilates
Say Goodbye To Back Pain
A strong core, equals a better back. Research has found, those with chronic back pain who practiced Pilates for just four weeks, experienced more relief than those who visited doctors and specialists. Working long hours at our desks and enduring endless stints of Christmas shopping are only going to increase back pain, so this is one way we can give our bodies some relief.
Increase Your Focus
Pilates urges us to focus, both on our breath and our body. It takes a lot of concentration and doesn’t allow us to zone out and let our brain start thinking about work, bills and all the other daily stresses. Dedicating time to think solely about our mind and body, reignites our focus and goals heading into the new year.
Be More Flexible
Alarmingly, the most common misconception about practicing Pilates is that people think because they’re not flexible, that they can’t do Pilates. This thought alone, is exactly why you should be doing Pilates! When your muscles are tight, you shorten your muscles and limit your body’s range of motion, hindering your exercise performance and putting yourself at risk of injury. And who has time for injuries over the festive season!?
