The Health Benefits of Pilates for Older Adults
As you grow older, your body undergoes tremendous change. It is important, as you age and your cells’ natural rejuvenation process slows, to give your body more care.
The most notable changes of aging are a decrease in strength, mobility, and balance.
Over time this can affect your daily activities due to fear of falling or injury, which often may result in a loss of independence and reduce your overall sense of wellbeing.
Pilates is an excellent full-body, low impact method known to align and strengthen the structure of the body.Regardless of your age, conditioning, or ability, it’s never too late to start a Pilates practice. Pilates will help you to age active and healthy.
