Pilates addresses the importance of core stability and provides an understanding of correct posture and muscle use, thereby reducing injury and providing rehabilitation when injury occurs. Based upon an anatomical understanding of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems, Anna Tetlow Pilates will create a comprehensive remedial programme for each client.
Individual sessions or small group classes will focus on specific areas individually or of common concern whilst using exercises to integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function. Pilates can be beneficial and adaptable for just about everyone regardless of age and fitness level.
Internalizing this awareness is a basic requirement for all highly developed body skills whether demonstrated by a professional dancer, gymnast, athlete, footballer or professional musician. It also provides the necessary remedial insights when injury occurs to enable a rapid recovery. Clients with less specialized complaints will benefit enormously from regular sessions and exercises to promote a better understanding of overall conditioning and muscle toning. In addition regular Pilates treatment promotes greater awareness of general body posture, movement and correct use of muscles. The promotion of Pilates exercising is highly beneficial to maintain a sense of physical and mental health and general well-being.
It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from other forms of exercise. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise today. Read More...
Garuda keeps to the principles of Pilates, but has taken the repertoire and ideology of an old movement to a new and exciting level. It creates strength, flexibility, coordination, endurance and range of motion within muscle and joints. The result is a stronger, leaner body, improved posture and ease of movement in everyday life.
The uninterrupted and continuous flow of each exercise series also provides a cardiovascular workout. Last but not least it focuses the mind and offers relaxation with exercise. With the addition of the Garuda, Anna Tetlow Pilates offers a new level of exercise diversity due to the increased size of the carriage, increased range of movement within the frame work and near limitless adjustability of the pulleys, ropes, bards and straps. Combined with a split carriage this takes exercise, body conditioning and rehabilitation to a new level.
The Garuda promotes a new and improved way to isolate muscle groups and break down motions into targeted moves that can be crucial for those following sports-specific training or undergoing a personalised rehabilitation programme. It can be used to progress movement and to address the functional needs of all ages and abilities. Read More...
