What can Pilates do for your mind?

Ready to reset?

As fellow pilates peeps, you know how amazing Pilates is at rehabilitating injuries, keeping aches and pains at bay and staying supple and agile.

But Pilates is more than that.

“You can say what Pilates is in three words. Stretch with Strength and Control. And the control part is the most important because that makes you use your mind.” – Romana Kryzanowska

Pilates is a mind-body method.

It challenges not only your body, but also your mind.

That’s where the magic lies.

It takes every part of your mind to be aware of where your body is in space.

Of breathing intentionally

Of slowing down and speeding up

Of being fully present.

(Just try thinking about the grocery list when you are doing the Swan on the barrel!)

At the end of your Pilates session, you say hello to a calm & mindful you.

When we are mindful, we experience life as we live it. It is complete awareness of experiences in the present moment

Studies show that an increased sense of mindfulness boosts optimism and decreases stress and anxiety. It enhances mental and physical wellbeing and reduces chronic pain.

Pilates forces you to focus inward, on executing each movement to the best of your ability, to accept what your are capable of that day and celebrating your ability.

Pilates centers you, it puts you back in touch with your body. It provides relief from muscle tension and a relaxed, clear focus.

The perfect mindful exercise.

Joe knew this when he said:

“Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.” – Joseph Pilates

Pilates is more than just a workout!
