Pilates for Seniors
Why is Pilates Important for Seniors?
Whether its on a mat, on classical Pilates equipment, or seated in an everyday chair, Pilates is beneficial for seniors. The exercises that are given help shoulder and lower back pain while building strength in those areas. Depending on the client and class format, weight bearing exercises are given to maintain bone density and strength. Every major muscle group and joints are targeted including working mobility and flexibility in the feet and hands. Alongside beneficial and measurable results of seniors who have a regular Pilates practice, group socialization and interaction is promoted through senior living and activity programs.
