Many of us have niggling aches and pains and we are restricted in movement, we feel stiff and have no balance but sadly we learn to live with our limitations and accept these a natural progression of getting older but it doesnt have to be this way. I have seen wonderful improvement in people who work with me even if they started to do Pilates at the age of 77... They have left their friends right behind as now at age 82 they are fitter, stronger and more flexible than ever before and still light on their feet with much improved balanced and with that they are so much more confident and they love having fun with their grand children and keeping up with their energy.
Frailty is dangerous! As we age, one unexpected fall maybe the one where we discover it is much harder to bounce back in the same way we could when we were younger. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Senior clients who have been on a similar journey with me have managed to get fitter and stronger than ever before. Those who live by themselves feel more confident and know they can continue to live independently for as long as possible.
Meet Jean - 80 Years old suffers from Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, COPD, severe degenerative process in her spine, multiple accidents. She nearly ended up in a wheelchair and instead she transformed her life in 4 months and has gone from strength to strength. Very insipring woman.
Come and have a light stretch and spine mobilisation with me. Very good after a long break of being inactive over Christmas. Happy New Year!
