Chair Pilates: Stronger Core for Seniors

Pilates in a chair is designed to strengthen abdominal and lower back muscles, improving posture and decreasing back pain.  Through mind-body awareness and breathwork, exercises improve balance and reduce injury. A standing section using ballet barre strengthens and refines small and large muscle groups and reinforces proper alignment principles. Props are used for challenge and modification.
