Pilates is a type of exercise designed to strengthen, tone, and stretch your body, while also calming your mind. The exercises may look simple but when done correctly each movement is designed to take a great deal of precision and control. There is a great emphasis on mindfulness and technique with each movement when done with the guidance of a professional scoliosis pilates instructor. The movements can benefit scoliosis since there is tremendous impact on posture, and general well-being.
Don’t be fooled by its smaller size and simplicity. The Pilates chair is used in just about every position including standing, lying down, kneeling, and more. The benefits of lengthening and strengthening the body are endless using the chair. With Scoliosis the chair allows for additional feedback into the areas of the back that need extra support.
