Can I do Pilates if I have medical or
health related issues?
At your first session
you will fill out a comprehensive health form. We want to know what
problems you have and what medications you are taking. We can then
tailor the perfect program for you. If you are recovering from an
accident or surgery, we can work with you post rehab. We will be happy
to work closely with your Doctor or Physical Therapist to insure you
safely stay on the road to recovery.
I’ve heard that Pilates can help me
“grow taller”. How can that be?
Once a person has
reached adulthood, they can’t “grow taller’. What Pilates can do is
correct postural problems that will enable you to stand taller. As your
alignment and posture improves, you will not only stand taller, you may
get relief from nagging aches and pains such as shoulder, neck and back
problems. It is not uncommon for a client to measure and inch or more
taller after doing Pilates regularly.
Can I do Pilates if I’m pregnant?
Pilates is an excellent
exercise method during a normal pregnancy. Pilates can help your body
deal with the physical changes you are experiencing and also help
prepare you for labor and delivery. We will put together a program that
addresses your individual needs. If you are new to Pilates, we suggest
waiting until after your baby is born to begin your practice. We will
not accept new clients while they are pregnant. If you have been doing
Pilates prior to becoming pregnant we will be happy to work with you.
