Why every caregiver needs a weekly Reformer Pilates routine.
Reformer Pilates is no longer unattainable for the average person. There was a persona for the longest time that only those who had expendable income or ballet dancers were the only ones that could practice Reformer Pilates. The practice of Reformer Pilates has evolved to become more accessible and affordable to meet the strenuous demands of everyday life.
Unfortunately, the daily demands of our current culture have taken a toll on our overall health. We have rising issues of posture, spinal, joint and muscular dysfunction. Chronic issues like arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, edema, spinal fusions, herniation, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, slipped discs, etc. can be corrected with Reformer Pilates and not surgery or prescription drugs.
Just like Yoga, Reformer Pilates is becoming more rehabilitative for our bodies than ever before and it is no longer perceived to be just an exercise to get six pack abs. It makes you strong, longer, leaner, calmer, empowered, energized and balanced.
As caretakers, you are athletes whether you know it or not. Mothers who go through pregnancy to childbirth to breastfeeding alone are warriors. Their bodies have been through hell and back and they need Reformer Pilates the most. Problems from childbirth like weak bladder control, constipation, diastasis recti (separation of the abdominal wall), c-section recovery, scoliosis, lumbar spine pain, mid-back pain, shoulder pain, chest pain from breastfeeding and post partum depression are serious issues resulting from having children.
Reformer Pilates is the only full body integrative exercise that can focus on all these issues. It’s functional movement patterns make it easier to DO LIFE and pain free. It targets diastasis recti to close the abdominal wall completely, corrects spinal dysfunction, takes away pain in your joints and lengthens and stretches overused muscles from breastfeeding and rocking/holding babies. Reformer Pilates brings you back to the person you used to be before children, the ultimate mind body balance.
Other caregivers like fathers, grandparents, nannies, babysitters, aunts, uncles etc. also benefit from Reformer Pilates because it helps to keep their core postural muscles strong and lengthened to prevent injury while they are lifting, carrying, rocking, bending, twisting, pulling, etc. Children are extremely active and they’re probably chasing them around constantly. Reformer Pilates is a preventative measure to help prevent injury from happening to your body to keep you strong and centered so you can get through life with these active tots.
