“The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.”
When it comes to training with Pilates, one mustn’t just assume it’s an ordinary workout. Pilates not only lengthens, strengthens and sculpts your body, it also helps nurture your mind, body and spirit as well. It’s no wonder the Pilates is fast growing in popularity around the world. Since 2001, Polestar Pilates Asia has offered the Pilates education all over Asia, to all who are pursuing quality education and support. Polestar Education is a worldwide provider of rehabilitation-based Pilates education, producing high-caliber Pilates teachers and successful Pilates studio models. Apart from your traditional Pilates studio, Polestar-trained Pilates teachers can be found at medical facilities, performing arts conservatories and fitness centers throughout the world! Many people come to a Pilates class to get a flat tummy, ease joint pains and discomforts, rehabilitate after a surgery or improve their athletic performance. And Pilates can do all of that! But the most amazing part happens when students start seeing changes not only in their bodies but also in their minds, emotions and throughout their daily lives. Read on for 4 reasons why:
The modern world is full of distraction and stress- many are looking for a personal state of peace and tranquility. When searching for that inner balance we commonly consider meditation, affirmations and other techniques, but we must not forget that exercise is a fantastic tool to help us balance our lives.
Here are some of the benefits Pilates that may help you find your balance:
Pilates trains your brain.
- Learning new activities is a proven brain-training technique, and an important part of brain fitness. By learning and incorporating new movements or modifications into your Pilates routine assists in challenging the body and mind at the same time. This also helps your multitasking skills!
A Healthier, Better Functioning Nervous System
- Your core consists of many muscles! Learning to use them is a cleansing rinse for your nervous system, and a healthy nervous system means better communication between your brain and other parts of your body as well as the release of stress-fighting and mood-boosting hormones.
Meditation / Mindfulness Benefits
- You must clear your mind of any distractions when performing Pilates work on the Reformer. Pilates lets you reap all the benefits of meditation while letting you focus on your body the entire time while also relieving tension and stress built up in the muscles through gentle stretching and gradual conditioning.
More Confidence and Respect for Self
- Pilates teaches us to respect our body and be content with it. When we learn to respect our bodies, we also learn to do the same with everything else in our lives. We start living according to our priorities and desires, instead of constantly comparing ourselves to our peers(or Instagram feed!).
“Through the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning this unique trinity of a balanced body, mind and spirit can ever be attained. Self confidence follows.” -Joseph Pilates
