Pilates for Balance
Maintaining good balance is essential for quality of life as we age. Pilates has positive effects on strength and coordination that lead to increased body awareness, joint stability and balance when practiced regularly. This decreases the risk of falling, and improves performance in daily tasks such as walking, carrying objects, and moving from seated to standing positions. Classes focus on strength and mobility in the core, spine, legs, feet and ankles. Balance is practiced in a variety of different positions to challenge the body and increase coordination over time. Balance training is incorporated into our seniors and osteofit classes. Contact our studio coordinators at 250-598-9828 ext 2 to discuss our class options.
