Improve Your Posture with Reformer Pilates In West London
To improve one’s posture is to improve one’s quality of life.
What seems to be a simple back pain at first can eventually lead to a severe posture problem, but even that is often overlooked.
Many of us don't realize the severity of a posture problem can bring. From our physical abilities to our overall health, a simple hunched back can be the leading cause of an unexpected illness. It can restrict a person’s movement, hindering you from doing the things you’re fond of- like sports or anything that has to do with actively moving.
Problems in posture can make daily life difficult. But what exactly causes these problems? You can barely realize that you're already slouching for desk jobs working 8 hours seated in front of a computer.
From working an entire shift up in your feet, the strain of standing up for long periods can also affect your posture. Even just simply the habit of lifting heavy objects without the proper stance— all of these can lead to bad posture.
But what can we do to fix this? Or better yet-avoid it altogether?
One way to do so is by engaging in a reformer Pilates class.

Reformer Pilates is performed on a Pilates reformer machine and is generally more intense and dynamic than mat-based Pilates.
Invented by Joseph Pilates, the reformer is one of the most well-known and widely utilized Pilates apparatus.
Still considered a low-impact form of exercise, reformer pilates are higher in intensity than mat-based pilates because the springs in the machine add resistance to the Pilates exercises.
A reformer is a platform bed on a frame consisting of risers with pulleys and ropes attached. The strings attached to it make it possible to induce light or heavy resistance onto the student.
It also has a foot bed, and a sliding carriage that connects to the springs. A headrest and shoulder blocks come with the carriage.
Because of the reformer's moving elements and variable spring tension, your muscles, particularly your core, work more than they would on any other type of workout.
Regularly attending reformer Pilates classes can introduce your body to a better, more enjoyable way of staying active.
