Condition, mentally and physically, through muscle control, flexibility, coordination and strength and tone. Pilates engages your trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle and emphasizes proper breathing.
When done correctly, Pilates exercise improves alignment and posture, body awareness and flexibility, as well as balance— all of which helps injury prevention, recovery, and improve performance.
Pilates workout is an excellent complement to physical therapy services and can be done at PHOENIX’s St. Mary’s location, including pop pilates and pilates for men.
Practiced faithfully, Pilates can:
- Increase lung capacity and circulation through deep, healthy breathing.
- Integrate strength and flexibility, particularly of the deep core, abdomen and back muscles; mind-body coordination; balance and body awareness
- Improve posture, balance, and core strength
- Improve bone density and joint health
I have been employed by PHOENIX for the past 17 years as a Facility Director. This career path has given me opportunities that I would not have seen with any other employer, to include advancement, continuing education and development of programs. PHOENIX provides an efficient framework for operations, billing and compliance, but yet provides the opportunity to operate a clinic as if it were my own, but provides the stability and compliance that would be impossible if I were a sole proprietor.
