Why can I claim that Pilates is the best exercise modalities for mobility, brain activity and health?
While we may have a predisposition to certain weaknesses and illnesses, we are still in complete control over if we are turning them on and off by our choices.
For starters, only 20% of our health comes from genetics. 80% comes from our movement patterns, what we eat, how much we sleep, our stress levels, our higher purpose and connection to a family friends.
Our physical and cognitive decline is increased by stress, which increases the inflammation in our bodies. We simply need to destress, rest and heal.
In Pilates, we work on complex cognitive activities, such as : Gait, sit to stand, reach and bend, posture, flexion and extension, side bend and rotation. Dynamic balance, Calf stretches, and contralateral movement patterns.
