PARKINSON’S PILATES: (STARTING SOON) Pilates exercises involve stretching, strengthening, and balancing the whole body, and are designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, as well as enhance mental awareness.   Our Pilates for Parkinson’s classes focus on helping those with PD stay independent by incorporating Pilates exercises into their daily lives.  The basic principles of the Pilates Method of exercise helps students achieve optimal balance, coordination, flexibility and posture among many other physical benefits.  Pilates can have a tremendous impact on movement freedom, and that translates to better quality of life.  A physically balanced body supports a balanced emotional state, and optimal mental well-being.

Pilates can be safely prescribed for people with mild-to-moderate PD. Preliminary evidence indicates that its practice could have a positive impact on fitness, balance and physical function. Its benefits on lower-body function appear to be superior to those of other conventional exercises Suárez-Iglesias, David et al. “Benefits of Pilates in Parkinson’s Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.” (Medicina) 2019
