What is Pilates?

Pilates is a low-impact exercise and body conditioning program established by Joseph Pilates in the early twentieth century to help dancers recover from injuries.


Today, it can be a great way to raise healthy kids with healthy habits.


When Joseph Pilates first created his exercise method, he envisioned it being taught to children early to develop excellent movement patterns. He wanted to see Pilates for children taught in schools so healthy movement habits might be carried over into adulthood.


The Pilates method is guided by principles like concentrating on each movement, utilising the abdominal and low back muscles, precise flowing movement patterns, and steady and controlled breathing. 


Pilates can be done on specially designed equipment, such as a bed-like structure called a reformer, or on a mat or blanket.


Pilates focuses on your core and muscular tone rather than muscle growth. This way, you maintain optimum fitness while indulging in low-performance exercises.


So you do less work and still get the most done.


Why Pilates For Kids

Children and teenagers are getting less and less exercise each day, and they choose to spend more time sitting and using phones, tablets and laptops.


We like to think about Pilates as an alternative option for your children to stay active and moving, and it’s something you can also do as a family.


If you’re wondering about some of the other benefits of Pilates for your children, read ahead, and we’ll tell you.

Corrects Their Posture

One of the most common reasons for starting Pilates is to enhance posture. Here at La Dolce Studio, we often hear our customers have back problems due to particular lifestyle choices. We believe there is no such thing as poor posture; your body simply needs to move and change positions regularly.


We also frequently hear parents talk about how their kids nowadays are addicted to TV and video games for long hours, negatively impacting their posture. 


To preserve the spine’s natural curves while sitting, standing, or moving, you must have both good movement and muscle strength- two things you can easily achieve with Pilates.

Lower Risks of Injury

Exercise and movement, in general, have been shown to reduce the risk of injury and various diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and much more. This means that getting kids moving and exercising can benefit their health for the rest of their lives.

Teaching children how to move with ease and good quality pose patterns early will help them stay healthy throughout childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Injuries are less common in a body that moves smoothly and has sound muscular activation and strength.


Pilates for kids is also an excellent method to supplement other activities too. If your child is athletic or participates in gymnastics, Pilates is an excellent supplement to help them avoid injury and excel in their sport. 


Elite athletes use various training methods to maintain their bodies performing at their best. And Pilates is certainly one of them.


Furthermore, participating in various sports at a young age is frequently helpful for keeping kids active and performing well in their chosen sport, especially if they specialise when they get older. Pilates can help improve their overall athletic performance with ease.

Strengthens Muscles

Pilates is a safe way to develop more robust and healthier muscles in your children. The greatest method to ensure that children and teenagers exercise safely is to teach them proper technique and form.


Pilates is a great way to teach our children to move effectively while performing standard strength workout routines such as squats, deadlifts, and lunges without adding too much resistance. 

It causes their muscles to contract to coordinate their limbs with their trunk. Pilates emphasises movement quality so kids can learn the quality patterns and form they need in life and particular sports. This will give them a solid foundation if they decide to work in athletics later in life.

Allows Them to Concentrate More

Pilates is often called a mind-body exercise. To practice Pilates, kids must concentrate on one portion of their body while executing the movements. It draws your attention to your body, focusing on how it moves and how you achieve movement. This is an excellent opportunity to practice active mindfulness and focus.


Hence, Pilates can help your child increase concentration, which can help them perform better in athletics and other vital focus-based aspects of their life.

Improve Balance

Pilates can easily boost your child’s strength and muscle development early and more effectively. As children grow, they develop strength and sturdiness, which can be easily influenced by physical activity. Whether they live more active or inactive lifestyles has a direct impact on their physical abilities as goes on. 


Balance is a key part of body development as one grows up, and Pilates focuses heavily on this. With coordinated and focus-based movements taught in Pilates comes strength, flexibility and soundness, all of which constitute the foundation for outstanding Balance.


Strengthens Muscles

Nothing boosts confidence more than self-consciousness, self-development and enhanced physical abilities. As children grow older, they tend to develop ill thoughts regarding their natural bodies and physical appearance. Many people go through it, and it typically starts small before manifesting into low self-esteem.


You can counteract these feelings by helping your child adapt to body awareness through mindful physical movements. Pilates helps children understand how to use their body’s muscles and joints to achieve the best results. This will benefit them throughout their psychological development and views on their self-worth.

  • Can osteopathy treat my recurring migraine?
    Various factors can cause migraines. Through osteopathy, we can identify the root cause of your migraine and resolve it. Osteopathy relieves muscular spasms and stress in the body by using hands-on therapy. It will facilitate the body's natural healing process to allow improved mobility and enhanced drainage of bodily fluids for your migraine to be gone for good.
