The studio has an interesting collection of all ages and genders, with the oldest into their 80’s. All are positive thinking individuals who come ready to learn, progress, and in many cases heal. They bring their challenges with optimism and continue to challenge my years of expertise.
The Pilates Spine Corrector is now at our studio. This teaching tool has been added to our mat classes and is highly beneficial for people with spine problems, from spine curvatures to tight muscles in the back. The Spine Corrector has a barrel shaped back that allows the student to arch and bend over the barrel while being supported. It sits on the mat and is very stable so beginner level students do not feel nervous about falling.
Joesph Pilates said, ” If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”
At Synergy Pilates in White Rock we also offer an Infrared Massage Bed that sits in the studio for any of our students to use. We have students that use this bed before, during or after their class. The Infrared heat combined with the acupressure massage of the rollers has amazing results, especially for muscles that are knotted and cramping. So often muscles spasms are more painful than the actual problem itself. Once the muscles relax the rollers can help realign vertebra.
