Pilates at Medicine Wheel Wellness


   

Pilates Classes at Medicine Wheel Wellness in Jackson, WY
“I fully recommend Medicine Wheel’s Pilates classes. Jess and Michelle are incredibly talented, intuitive teachers. The small class size means you get as much attention as you need and they spend lots of time making sure you’re getting the full benefit from the classes. My core strength and flexibility have improved significantly, with little to no back pain anymore, making a marked difference be it on the trail, the river, at home, or in the office.” -Cathy Wikoff

Pilates is a form of strength and flexibility training that can be done by someone at any level of fitness. The exercises can also be adapted for people who have limited movement or who use wheel chairs. It is an engaging exercise program that people want to do. Pilates promotes a feeling of physical and mental well-being and also develops inner physical awareness. Since this method strengthens and lengthens the muscles without creating bulk, it is particularly beneficial for dancers and actors. Pilates is also helpful in preventing and rehabilitating from injuries, improving posture, and increasing flexibility, circulation, and balance. Pregnant women who do these exercises can develop body alignment, improve concentration,and develop body shape and tone after pregnancy. According to Joseph Pilates, “You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.”
Although Pilates is often associated with dancers, athletes, and younger people in general who are interested in improving their physical strength and flexibility, a simplified version of some Pilates exercises is also being used as of 2003 to lower the risk of hospital-related de-conditioning in older adults. A Canadian study of hospitalized patients over the age of 70 found that those who were given a set of Pilates exercises that could be performed in bed recovered more rapidly than a control group given a set of passive range-of-motion exercises.
