Pilates for Seniors
Seniors Pilates 60+Pilates is a form of conditioning that is perfect for the senior body. It supports and enhances overall fitness, as well as daily activities. Classical Pilates focuses on improving core strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance in the body along with strength and flexibility in the back and spine. As we age, it is common to see rounded shoulders, lack of core strength, back pain, tightness of neck, hamstrings, hips and other joints. The beauty of Pilates is that it works for anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Our classes are designed to fit a wide range of physical needs and are offered in a series format to provide maximum value and impact.

“At 72 I considered myself in relatively good shape based on a physically active lifestyle of jogging, hiking and weight exercises. Age related ailments such as arthritis had reduced the flexibility in my lower back and neck. Years of not using the muscles surrounding my shoulders and hips had also significantly reduced their strength. Since I started taking Pilates, the flexibility in my back has improved and I have new confidence in my ability to control my core muscles. I consider myself a rejuvenated senior with continued improvement still to come.”
