The Power of Pilates
Pilates is a low-impact exercise that focuses on muscle strength while improving postural alignment, movement pattern and core stability. It was developed in the 1920s by physical trainer Joseph Pilates for therapeutic purposes.
The pilates method was first used to treat troops returning from war and dancers such as Martha Graham and George Balanchine (to strengthen their bodies and heal their aches and pains).
Pilates is done with or without apparatus, but the routines will always include slow, precise movements and breath control.
Pilates is incredibly adaptable; while you can perform it in a gym or studio, you can also do it at home. If an at-home workout is your style, or if you want to familiarise yourself with the exercise type before enrolling in a public class, many streaming or virtual Pilates options are available.
Regardless of how you attend the courses, trying pilates can be a game changer for your health and workout, regardless of your fitness background.
Why Pilates For Hypermobility
People with joint hypermobility syndrome have specific concerns such as joint dislocation, pain during heavy activities, and stiffness in some joints. Many people also struggle with the awareness of bodily parts concerning one another in space. Because the joints lack inherent stability, they must seek it elsewhere.
While not everyone with hypermobile joints may experience these symptoms, it is critical for those who concentrate on strength, muscle control, and proprioception to understand how the body moves in space.
Pilates is an excellent practice for developing body awareness in persons with hypermobile joints. It teaches you how to move at the joint level, strengthen the mind-body connection, develop control over the deeper layers of the body, and create power from within.
In addition, pilates will work to strengthen the joints by reducing the range of motion and focusing more on the joint/muscle origin of the action.
Stabilisation is achieved through joint strengthening.
These exercises are designed specifically for persons with hypermobility to allow for an equally distributed stress on the body, preventing hanging in some regions and locking in others. Your complete range may be stunning to look at, but it may not be that good for your body.
Pilates help to establish an evenness of effort throughout the body by engaging the joints’ deep muscles. This results in better comprehension (of each individual’s unique physique), sharper reflexes, and stability.
Rather than reaching and lengthening’ hypermobile joints, Pilates teachers in La Dolce Studio will employ signals to link and stabilise them. The emphasis will be on teaching an anchor point and moving from a centring position.
Other Health Benefits of Pilates
Have you considered trying pilates? Here are five Pilates advantages that may convince you.
Improves Your Posture
Pilates exercises are designed to enhance abdominal, glute, and deep core muscle strength, with a strong emphasis on improving postural alignment.
Improving the strength of these muscles provides a stronger foundation for maintaining spinal alignment and upright posture. It also allows for less tension on your joints and ligaments, particularly those in your shoulder and neck.
Builds Core Strength
Many Pilates movements develop and rely on core strength. Specifically, it focuses on abdominal strength or the deepest layer of abdominal muscles. These muscles help to maintain the spine, raise the pelvic floor, and support the diaphragm.
This set of muscles creates a support system that allows us to discover efficiency and balance in movement, ease and mobility of breath, and fluidity and alignment in physiological work.
Relieves Muscle Tension
Strong core muscles promote improved posture, which helps avoid or relieve muscle strain in our daily routines. Many people have weak core and back muscles, and strengthening these postural muscles helps balance out the strain caused by this deficit. A stronger core and back muscles can help pull you out of those strenuous desk positions that produce stress and soreness in your shoulders and legs.
Promotes Weight Loss
As you work on toning your body, you promote your body’s ability to burn fat. Pilates builds muscle, which is significant since muscle growth improves your body’s basal metabolic rate (BMR). This constitutes the number of calories you lose performing daily sustainable functions. Higher muscle function occurs from pilates and enhances your BMR.
Decreases Back Pain
The weaker your core, the more likely you are to suffer from back pain.
Pilates emphasises core-strengthening as a foundation, notably addressing positional control of the lumbopelvic area. You can transfer Pilates movement patterns to many other dynamic activities.
As a result, pilates can help protect you against back pain not only during other workouts but also during everyday activities such as lifting, reaching, and bending over.
Relieves Your Stress
Exercising increases our endorphins, which work as a natural stress reliever. Pilates also employs breath control, another excellent method for not only reducing stressed feelings in the present but also balancing the body’s autonomic nervous system and alleviating long-term symptoms of stress-related disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Pilates is an excellent way to increase strength and flexibility, creating excellent resistance to injuries. While doing so, It also adds practical variation to your workout routine. Because it is primarily low-impact, people with joint and muscular difficulties can use it to create sustainable strategies for working the body without causing additional stress or irritation during movement.
