Healthy Bones: Pilates for Active Aging
Healthy Bones-Pilates for Active Aging class is a Pilates workout that uses bone-strengthening techniques while focusing on alignment and balance, gait (walking) improvement, and working towards a stronger active daily lifestyle. The workout targets the glutes (tush), hips, arms and back, legs and feet, while giving the whole body a terrific workout. The importance of weight-bearing exercise that loads and strengthens bones (which cannot be underestimated) as well as focusing on the abdominals, all without using “crunches,” – is a strong focus in our class.
If you are are in your golden years, have Low Bone Density, Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, then this is the class for you!

Post Natal Pilates
Congratulations! You have a new addition (or additions) to your family! Getting back in shape after having a baby can seem an intimidating and time consuming task. But Pilates can help speed the process along. Pilates offers the perfect post-natal workout and can be practiced by new mothers in varying post-natal stages. It is a wonderful workout for the new mother.
Postnatal helps to re-gain the core strength in the abdominals as you work towards a safe and effective recovery- taking into account any added injuries or imbalances. Easing back into your Pilates practice, you should have given yourself time for your abdominal muscles to recover prior to joining a postnatal approved Pilates Mat class. It is recommended to wait a minimum of 6 weeks and possibly longer depending on the specifics of your delivery.
Feel free to reach out to us at the Front Desk if you have any questions at all. ** We also highly recommend the Hypopressive® technique to assist you in reconnecting to your centre/core/abdominals and pelvic floor. This might even be something you consider to begin your journey back to your classes/sessions, as it is entirely safe for Post Natal and very effective in aiding in Diastasis Recti, and Pelvic Floor restoration. More info on the Hypopressive® technique and our classes or sessions on our PRIVATE SESSIONS page.
