Balanced Body for Seniors
When each part of the body works together to develop, enhance, and maintain stability, the body is in balance. A truly balanced body is reflected in the physical body, but also mental and emotional states. How you perceive yourself and others, how you form and maintain relationships, and how you manage difficulty are measures on whether you’ve achieved balance in your body.
Being mentally, emotionally, and physically in balance offers a supreme level of contentment for everyone, including seniors.
Sheppard Method Pilates understands and helps nurture a balanced body in our Pilates for seniors approach and practice. Physical health is crucial in the journey to achieving balance as it awakens your senses, warms your muscles, and helps prevent or recover from injury. It is also a large part of embracing responsibility for your own life and happiness. We have worked with seniors every day for decades as they achieve a balanced body. If you’re in the West Los Angeles area, we invite you to discover how a balanced body can benefit you.
Benefits of Pilates for Seniors
Without putting stress on the overall body, Pilates creates tremendous results for all ages and fitness levels. Subtle and focused movement, supported by mental focus and breathing techniques, can improve joint flexibility and dexterity, reduce swelling and pain, and facilitate recovery and rehabilitation.
Pilates for seniors utilizes both mat classes and work on the classic Pilates reformer machine. With expert instruction and clear, thoughtful guidance, you can expect increased core strength that, in turn, serves as a healthy foundation for your life.
