Why You should do Pilates

Why You Should Do Pilates
Joseph Pilates knew that spine health is very important at any age.

You are only as old as your spine. Well, according to Joseph Pilates, that is. When he was creating his program, originally called Contrology, it was designed as a way to help with flexibility, which he thought was paramount for good health. Joseph Pilates once said, “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young!”

Having the ability to move freely throughout life is very important and a mantra we live by at Imprint Pilates . In order to keep your mobility, we must be able to move with control in all of the directions the body & spine is meant to move: flexion, extension, lateral flexion, and rotation. However, if your rehabbing a bulged disc or herniated disc issue for example, some movement can be contraindicated but Pilates is versatile and with guided instruction on modifications, you can optimize and stabilize your movement efficiently with Pilates. Learning to do this safely and with the support of the muscles of the core is what Pilates is all about.
