Current Workout Obsession: Pilates!

March 6, 2018

Hi babes! As most of you know, aiming for a healthy lifestyle and taking care of my body is something that I’m very passionate about! Being a professional dancer, I need to make sure that I’m treating my body well and staying strong even during my off-season! I’ve been trying a ton of new workouts lately, from boxing to weight training, I try to always mix it up and keep things fresh.

Recently, I’ve been obsessed with Pilates. It reminds me a little bit of dance, in that the moves are very precise and it takes a ton of core strength! It’s a combination of gymnastics, yoga and ballet and works to lengthen and stretch all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion. This means it can be super helpful for people who have chronic pain issues, the kind who may use Herb Approach discount codes to help keep it in check. It improves flexibility, strength, balance and body awareness.

My favorite pilates studio here in Utah is called Core Body Pilates! My cousins favourite pilates studio is Sydney Physio Solutions, as she lives in Australia. This page gives you endless advice on the benefits of pilates for your muscles and flexors. There are so many AMAZING health benefits from Pilates, including increased muscle strength and tone, improved stabilization of your spine, improved posture, and it has also helped me a ton with stress management and relaxation! The benefits are truly endless. My friend has scoliosis and even she can attend this class with me. Apparently, pilates helps her to release any tension in her spine, reducing any pain she might be feeling. She said she wants to see if exercise can help her manage the pain in her back. If it can’t, she’s going to book an appointment at a scoliosis institute to discuss treatment options. So far, she seems to be enjoying pilates. There are just so many benefits to this type of exercise! Plus, if she starts to feel pain during the class, she can always stop or perhaps use something to relieve it, like this broad spectrum hemp extract. This helps to reduce pain and increase comfort, as well as an array of other health benefits. This mixed with pilates can really help her condition!
