So what IS the difference between doing Pilates and doing strength training with dumbbells and gym equipment? One big difference is the emphasis on the spine,shoulder girdle, and pelvis in pilates, with the emphasis on limbs being secondary.
In our Pilates Reformer classes in Mission Valley, we always begin with an assessment of posture and body alignment. We work both sides of the body to even out left to right imbalances, and as we do so, we create greater strength and flexibility simultaneously.
Joseph Pilates was an insightful master of this which is why the Pilates technique has experienced longevity of over 100 years.
In the pilates room of our Mission Valley studio, we use tons of equipment and props for core strengthening. So when we do Pilates Reformer /TRX classes regularly, we don't need to take vitamins. Doesn't natural sound good?
