Body Awareness and Pilates in Manhattan
If you’ve ever worked with a Manhattan Pilates instructor, you know how intense Pilates can be. The workout covers every single part of your body, and it is incredibly strenuous and exhausting. But there are a number of benefits to doing Pilates as part of your workout routine, and one of them is an increased awareness of your body.
What happens is that Pilates actually “retrains” your mind to start building symmetry and coordination in the body. What does this do? Here are some of the things that you become more aware of.
– How are you standing during different times of the day? You’ll realize how you stand when you cook, when you brush your teeth, even when you’re just waiting in line.
– You’ll become more attentive to the way that your stomach and your shoulders are sitting, whether you are standing up or sitting down.
– You will become more aware of your posture while sitting, which will prevent you from having lower back pain due to the bad posture that many people have while sitting at the computer all day.
– You will start to notice if things “seem off” in your body and you will notice it much sooner than if you were not doing Pilates.
How does it do this? By making you focus on your core. A common mistake that many people make is that they spend all day slouched in front of a computer screen and then go to the gym and work out their arms and legs. This doesn’t do anything for your spine or your stomach, and actually can result in more harm than good.
Pilates, on the other hand, makes you focus on every part of your body and how each of those parts work together. A good Manhattan Pilates instructor will make you work on every part of your body several times throughout a 30 minute workout.
