Pilates and the Older Population

Pilates is a most wonderful form of physical activity that any age group can partake in. It is gentle on joints as it is low impact exercise, but it is great for strengthening. There are many benefits of Pilates, including increased stability and balance.

Older age groups may not feel as comfortable or as able to do the same physical activity as they used to do before. However, Pilates is a fantastic option. It targets the “core” stabilisers – the deep abdominal muscles and those muscles which run along the spine. This can have an amazing effect on posture too.
