Pilates for MS
Although scientists and doctors have not yet found a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, research indicates that a regular Pilates practice can help manage many of its symptoms such as foot-drop, posture, balance, bladder, fatigue and memory. Pilates is low impact and is suitable for all levels of mobility.
Practitioners say regular Pilates practice can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.
A typical class structure will start with seated exercises, standing exercises at the barre and floor based exercises for those that can get down to the mats. We will work with a variety of equipment that
provides support, challenge and resistance. Elements of pilates, yoga and dance are woven together for a class that focuses on mindful movement.
Expect a community of camaraderie, laughter, fun and of course hard work.
As my mom has lived with MS for over 20 years, I am familiar with and have compassion for its many symptoms. I am the first in Germany to be awarded an advanced pilates certificate in Pilates for
Neurological Conditions with specialization in MS, Parkinsons and Stroke.
Did you Know?
During the past years Hannah and Christian have been deepening their knowledge of Pilates and Fitness with numerous educations and workshops. Here is a sampling of our work…
Hannah is the first person in Germany to attain an advanced pilates and fitness certificate specializing in Neurological Conditions with emphasis on Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease and Stroke. How does that effect you? Science’s growing understanding of Neuroplasticity has changed the way we understand movement for both professionals and exercisers alike. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Even if you do not have a neurological condition or brain injury, the theories have already been integrated into your classes making your class experience even richer. Harnessing the power of the mind-body connection can improve the performance of any student or athlete.
Christian and Hannah both hold certificates in Pre and Post pregnancy pilates. What does this mean for you? Because of the high number of women that attend our studio, we are able to offer safe classes throughout pregnancy that keeps Mommy and Baby fit and active. Benefits include strengthening stomach and gluteal muscles, reducing back pain, strengthening pelvic floor, improving balance, strengthening legs, maintaining healthy weight, avoiding/repairing Diastasis Recti and reducing stress. Even for our athletes that are not pregnant, I think we can all agree that these benefits sound good!
Hannah and Christian hold an Advanced Pilates for Dancers Certificate from Karen Clippinger. And, they were the first in Germany to attain a certificate in Progressing Ballet Technique. Both of these educations help elite and hobby dancers alike access their dance technique more efficiently which reduces the danger of injury.
Even if you have never danced a step in your life, these ideas have already been integrated into your classes strengthening your knee joints, Hips, core muscles and ankles to help you function with ease and grace.
Those of you who trained with us before your ski season may have already recognized that you were less sore, had more leg muscle endurance and better balance. Coincidence?
The application of this knowledge helps us to rectify imbalances and asymmetries. The idea of “re-balance, release and re-connect” is good for us all.
Feel free to ask about any of our other workshops!
Pilates for Men
“but Pilates is for Ladies…” Actually Pilates was designed by a man for men. Joseph Pilates, professional boxer and weightlifter, developed his method as a way to build strength, flexibility, mental focus and control of the body. Now everyone from hobby athletes, professional athletes to those whom are new to sports can enjoy the benefits.
So, why Men Pilates? This class will be focusing on core strength, flexibility, balance, uniform muscle development and efficient movement patterns. Instead of just powering through your workout Christian helps to find the strength, length, and elasticity in your muscles. Saturdays at 10am with Christian. Take a look into the studio with Nürnberger Nachrichten. Click here to access the article from NN and a short video. Or enjoy this video below from BR Franken (in German) about our Pilates for Men class!
