Pilates for Menopause and Beyond

Work smarter – not harder! High intensity training during the menopause is less effective at relieving stress than the mindful movement of Pilates.
Studies have shown that women who did Pilates at least three times a week lost inches from their waist, lost weight and improved their BMI. After just eight weeks of a Pilates routine you will have improved flexibility, stand straighter and have reduced back pain.

Post-menopausal women are also at a greater risk of osteoporosis, Pilates not only strengthens your muscles but as a result of gaining more lean muscle, the bodies bone density also increases – a win-win result!

What is Pilates?

Joseph H. Pilates created a method of total body conditioning that emphasises:

  • proper alignment
  • centering
  • concentration
  • control
  • precision
  • breathing and flowing movement that results in increased flexibility
  • strength
  • body awareness
  • energy

He called his exercise method Contrology, it only became known as Pilates after his death from a fire in 1967. The Pilates method has come a long way since Joseph Pilates’ creation and is taught all over the world in many differing styles. Essentially Pilates is a body conditioning exercise that combines mat-work and equipment exercises to develop your muscle strength and flexibility.

“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.”

~ Joseph Hubertus Pilates (1880 – 1967)
