Scientists believe Pilates, a low-impact exercise with high-impact results, helps boost brain-body signaling, which often goes awry in PD. Pilates focuses on increasing core strength and improving spinal alignment, flexibility and balance, making it particularly helpful in countering PD symptoms. By improving the mind-body connection, Pilates teaches you how to have better control and awareness over the way your body moves. Deep breathing techniques improve cardiovascular efficiency and relaxes central nervous system. Exercises can be done on the mat, and can also be adapted to chair. Pilates is a great choice for everyone at every age, every ability!
