Pilates 4 Seniors

Pilates 4 Seniors

If your spine is flexible at 60 you are young.

Joseph Pilates

Keeping mobile is the key to staying young and to maintaining a good quality of life.  How many people do you know who lose the ability to move independently and whose quality of life rapidly diminishes?  We don’t have to run a marathon to keep fit and healthy but it’s vital that we keep ourselves moving and our muscles strong.

Pilates is excellent for seniors for the following simple reasons:

  • It’s gentle on bones and joints
  • Strengthens muscles
  • Mobilizes joints
  • Improves balance and coordination  (We lose both with age!)
  • Prevents falls
  • Improves posture – look 10 years younger!
