Pilates Classes Brisbane
What is Pilates? Almost everyone has certainly heard of pilates and may have a few thoughts to what it might involve, and over the years its popularity has increased throughout the world, from dancers to footballers. The main objective of pilates is to develop core strength. Core muscles are located deep in the abdomen and back and are responsible for our posture, supporting the spine and supporting movement. When these core muscles are strengthened, torso stability is obtained and muscles work in tandem with each other, helping correct posture and preventing injuries and using other accessory muscles as compensation.
Pilates classes usually involve a lot of mat work on the floor, using your body weight to create resistance. Intense stretches and both slow and fast movements are also part of a class. Some classes even use weights and specialised equipment. Pilates involves six principles which are Centering, Control, Flow, Breath, Precision, and Concentration. These key principles should be included in any high quality pilates class.
The benefits of practicing pilates are many: you develop a strong core, increased strength and flexibility, improved muscle tone and an overall improvement in mobility. Pilates is particularly good for those suffering from muscle and sport injuries, weak muscles and poor posture.
Massage is a form of applying pressure to muscles, ligaments and tendons to reduce tension, pain, help muscles recover from injuries and improve wellbeing. Massage is reagrded as an important treatment in many people's lives, and here at Green Apple Wellness our highly trained physiotherapists recognise this and offer fantastic massage sessions available to everyone. We gave four trained massage therapists and physiotherapists who specialise in different areas depending on the individual's needs. We also have a massage chair available as a quick and effective alternative to having a remedial massage. The massage chair is recommended for use in between remedial massage sessions.
