If you are looking for personalized Pilates sessions in Malaga, this is your place. Pilates focuses on the deep postural muscles, guided through specific breathing.
Through Pilates we work on physical health, strength, flexibility, coordination, agility and endurance. As a physiotherapist I analyze each person to modify and adapt the exercises to their condition.
The Pilates technique involves physical and mental conditioning and considers the body as a whole. In therapeutic pilates, your practice must be led by a physiotherapist in order to improve your physical condition and avoid or recover from any injuries.
Nowadays we have many methods, but doctors and health professionals agree on one thing: Pilates is the safest and most recommended for back pain or other problems due to physical inactivity.
It is a method with a particular vision of movement. It based mainly on non-impact exercises designed to work on postural correction and body awareness. The muscle groups that we will train are the same ones that we use daily in our working and domestic life.
It means physically to focus and bring stability to the center of the body and initiate movement from a stable foundation.
With proper centering we can avoid fatigue and low back pain.
Remain fully aware of what happens in our body with each movement.
How we exercise is as important as the exercise itself.
Controlled exercises are the secret of protecting muscles from injury.
At first it is difficult to control every aspect of your movements, but you will enjoy it once you learn it.
You will get more benefits from a few precise movements than from many of them performed carelessly.
Get the optimal amount of oxygen for your muscles.
It is also our link between the inside and the outside of the body. It connects them.
We focus on quality and not quantity or intensity.
A balance between contraction and relaxation of the muscles.
Do you know the applications of pilates? During our movements, all our attention is on the use and moves of the muscles of the center of our body to strengthen them. Thus improve posture and relieves pain. The basis of pilates is to strengthen the core.
Working on the motor control teach you stabilize and control the cervical and lumbar areas, the shoulder blades and the pelvis. It is necessary to work on motor control because the goal is not just strength. We do not only seek to improve muscle conditions. Active work is aimed at other structures that make up and produce movement; it is a whole neuromuscular system.
The goal is to discover which movement could be wrong, change it and integrate it into our brain, creating thereby a new normality in our body.
We also use pilates to prevent injuries. The muscles of the central part of the body, when they work correctly, it turns into an effective help. They support the body movements and this is a great way of prevention.
Pilates is more effective than abs in accomplishing the core strength. It helps to improve balance. It is one of the most complete and effective ways to work on the strength and the stability of the core.
