Good Posture is Not a Simple Recipe

Written by 
Great article in the San Diego UT today on Posture and why cookbook approaches to treatment do not work! And why it is so important to choose a PT or pilates instructor with experience and great training....like the ones at Pilates People :)
"The problem with cookbook approaches is that they do not take into consideration the numerous anatomical and functional variations in people, which fall within normal limits.
For people who do not fit the "plumb line profile," to try to assume such a posture would mean to create excessive compressive or tension strain on certain joint and soft tissue structures, and to excessively contract muscles. This could easily lead to pain and tissue irritation, if kept for a long period.


An ideal static posture is the body position in which there is the least potential for tissue strain or irritation, and muscles can maintain a balanced resting position with the least amount of energy spent."

Pilates San Diego is a body conditioning routine that builds flexibility, muscle strength (making muscles lean and elongated, not “bulking up”), and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, his, and back.  It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates San Diego system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty, from beginner to advanced.  Clients can proceed at their individual pace, and intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
