Achieving Athletic GoalsClients with specific athletic goals gain stronger mental and physical connections to their body through the Pilates method. Practicing Pilates regularly creates full body strength, longer leaner muscles, better posture, and a true sense of confidence in and out of the Pilates studio.
Pain ManagementPilates can facilitate in injury rehabilitation. Injuries from back problems and surgeries, to knee, hip, and other joint problems can be improved through Pilates. Many clients testify that doing Pilates on a regular basis has helped reduce pain levels, and made them feel generally healthier after suffering from conditions such as fibromyalgia, neck and back pain, muscular sclerosis, and scoliosis.
Pre and Post-NatalWhether pregnant, thinking about having a baby, or just have had one, Pilates at Body Essentials is an excellent exercise choice. The basic principles of Pilates address the pelvic floor muscles, outer hips and inner thighs, as well as upper body strength. Strong pelvic floor, hip, and inner thighs make the difference between an efficient labor and one that causes extra stress on a mother's body. Training for labor is not all that Pilates does to help a new mother, the upper body strengthening involved in Pilates makes coming home with a new baby much easier. Carrying your newborn and all of their necessities will be a lot easier after having done Pilates during pregnancy.
Post-baby Pilates not only helps rid those extra pounds gained during pregnancy, it also gives a new mother that needed hour to focus on herself. The changes the body goes through during pregnancy are intense. Pilates helps to gently restore the body's natural alignment and balance with its deep core work and focus on correct posture.
