Pilates: developing postural strength and awareness


Lifestyle Courses Lifestyle courses run every term for 4–8 weeks. See the Lifestyle Courses inserts for more details or visit our website at www.southampton.ac.uk/sportrec Pilates Pilates focuses on controlling the core postural muscles which help keep the body balanced, providing essential support to the spine. Pilates teaches awareness of the breath and the alignment of the spine. These sessions will leave you feeling centred, calm and refocused. Tai Chi Tai Chi originated from the martial arts; the slow, graceful movements are designed to focus the mind and breathing to alleviate the stresses of everyday life. The continual fluid movements have a sedative effect upon the central nervous system which helps to stimulate improvements to the body’s other systems. It is calming and de-stressing and assists motor control over balance and can help the posture by loosening tight muscles. Yoga The word yoga means “union” referring to the union of the mind, body and spirit. Yoga is one of the most widely practised of the spiritual disciplines. The postures used in yoga have been developed over thousands of years as a systematic means of exercising every part of the body. Yoga can help prevent illness by boosting the immune system. It also encourages relaxation and can alleviate back pain as well as improving circulation.
