Gain Awareness of your Body Through Pilates ~ Benefits for Adults and Children!

Posted on: December 28th, 2012 by Chris No Comments

I have always enjoyed going to a Pilates class. It’s one of the best workouts I have ever had. The problem is, a good class is hard to find — so I have not been able to keep up with it. The nice thing about Pilates is that everyone can do it. And all athletes can reep the rewards of this fast growing exercise.

For most people it improves their range of motion, flexibility, circulation, posture and abdominal strength. It also helps those who suffer with back, neck and joint pain. It’s hard to find any downside to this exercise.

There are some true benefits of Pilates. Here’s a list from WebMD:

Pilates Benefit No. 1: Body Awareness

Pilates Benefit No. 2: A Stronger Core

Pilates Benefit No. 3: Body Control

Did you know that Pilates has been around for over 100 years? It didn’t make it to the U.S until 1926. And really not into the mainstream before now.

Just remember if you have any back pain or other ailments, you should ask your doctor before trying a new exercise.

We know there are tons of benefits for adults but there are also benefits for children. Pilates is said to improve the posture and spinal alignment in kids. It also increases their strength and flexibility. As with adults, children can gain awareness of their body and how to take care of it as it grows.

If you get the chance, you should take a Pilates class and see what you think. You will certainly be glad you did.
