Do you ever look at a picture of yourself and think, “Wow, my posture is horrible!” Or maybe…my posture is starting to look like that of my grandmothers? Over time if we do nothing about a rounded, hunched posture…our body will continue to move into that posture.
Unfortunately that posture leaves our body feeling stuck, achy, not able to move freely, inhibits our ability to balance and often just plain causes pain!
In this month’s virtual workshop, Pilates teacher and Physical Therapist Shelley Mockler will teach you how to do movements and exercises that will help you reverse that hunchback posture! Shelley’s Build a Better Swan workshop could also be called Learn to Reverse Hunchback Posture Workshop!
If you have osteoporosis/osteopenia swan and extension exercises can be a great way to strengthen your back and core muscles safely and help you improve your posture!
The tools you’ll learn in this workshop will help you immediately whether you are brand new to Pilates or if you’ve been practicing for years. Here’s just a few of the things you’ll walk away with:
- Learn why doing extension exercises (we call this the swan in Pilates) is so important to feeling great in your body.
- Learn why Pilates extension exercises are much more effective than exercises traditionally done in other fitness modalitites.
- Learn where you should and shouldn’t be “feeling” these types of exercises.
- Learn how to maximize your practice time by doing your exercises in a way that maximizes the benefits.
