ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
With much of our quality of life being dependant upon a healthy spine, it makes sense to take a few moments to get to know this all-important, truly core part of our body.
One of the great benefits of the Pilates method of exercise is that it is designed to promote a healthy, strong, flexible spine. In Pilates, the core muscles of the back and abdomen are trained to provide strength and flexibility for the spine. There are exercises that stimulate the spine, and an overall focus on balanced muscular development and skeletal alignment that helps keep the spine long, decompressed, and protected.
This workshop will teach you how to be aware of some of your movement habits that may stress the spine, and will help you change these habits to those that preserve a neutral alignment.
- The anatomy of the spine
- Types of postural alignment
- How to restore natural curves in the spine
- The correlation between the abs and an alignment of the spine
- Understanding the flexion and extension of the spine
- Practical exercises to stimulate and balance your spine
Open to all levels.
