The PP Approach
Good posture means keeping
your body in correct alignment by maintaining the natural curves of your spine
when sitting, standing or lying down. It is essential in the prevention of back
and neck pain and related disorders. The busy and stressful lives that we lead
today mean that it's very easy to pick up bad 'physical' habits such as slouching,
slumping and forgetting to exercise.
Pilates is a mind and body conditioning technique that focuses on training the core postural muscles that work to keep the body balanced. Joseph Pilates developed the Pilates exercise method over his lifetime (1880-1967). He believed mental and physical health are essential to one another. He thought that the "modern" life-style and bad posture lay at the roots of poor health. We agree with him.
