Pilates Fusion is about creating a results-inspired atmosphere. With controlled movement, concentration and highly effective teaching skills, here is what Pilates Fusion clients benefit from:
- feeling of well-being
- sense of accomplishment
- bone density and metabolism
- flexibility, toning and overall strength
- breathing and lung capacity (e.g. in case of asthma)
- posture and joint alignment
- restoration of natural curvature of the spinal column
- balance and coordination
- immune function
- tissue repair
- risk of injury
- stress related illnesses (e.g. heart disease)
- back pain
- neck and shoulder tension
Always adding new levels of intensity to workouts with major focus on posture, core stability and back strength mobility.
Controlling instability through activation of the stabilizing muscles of the torso, shoulders and hips.
Exercises to elicit greater proprioceptive awareness and recruit the deep support systems of the whole body while developing greater coordination and control. Great for rehab clients and professional athletes.
Modifications are included to accommodate certain weaknesses or to make an exercise more challenging.
- pelvic instability
- fibromyalgia syndrome
- multiple sclerosis
- respiratory diseases
- breast surgery
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- movement impairment patterns of the hip
- shoulder and upper quadrant rehabilitation
- impairments of the muscular actions of the shoulder girdle
Exercise considerations for clients with cervical conditions
- Strengthening and improving the performance of the cranio- vertebral region
- Strengthening and improving the function of the mid-cervical muscles
- Addressing muscle and fascia problems
- Following various approaches related to common neck syndromes
- Sacro-iliac dysfunction
- Degenerative conditions of the spine
- Spinal stenosis
- Spinal instability
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated intervertebral disc
- Spinal fusions
- Muscle control of the lumbo-pelvic girdle
- Elicit slow motor unit recruitment in the local stabilizers for optimal stability and postural endurance
- Rehabilitating an injured musculoskeletal system
- Dysfunction patterns of the local stabilizers and global mobilizers
Good for post-mastectomy and surgical clients. Subaccromial inpingement, intervertebral shearing and TMJ problems, kyphosis and more.
For golfers, shoulder motion can be influenced by restrictions found in the mid-back muscles and joints, while restrictions in the lower back might be influenced by problems in the hip region. For this reason, the assessment should be for the entire body and not just the area that appears to be inhibiting the swing. For a golfer, the Pilates routine should start by doing the mobility exercises followed by those for balance and, lastly, the stability workout for stance and swing.
You can increase club-head speed by developing flexibility and then by learning how to control this newly developed flexibility. Increase club power by training dynamic postural balance and by doing segmental coordination exercises for the entire body.
