Strengthen from the ground up with Pilates Mat classes in Charlestown

As children we develop through phases of rolling, crawling and kneeling through to standing, walking, running and climbing. The foundations of human movement began on the ground where we utilized sensation of our bodies and limbs on the floor to explore movement and progress to become stable in upright postures. As infants we had tremendous mobility and had to earn the right to stand and become stable. We did this through stabilizing and strengthening the range of motion we were born with.

Moving on the ground requires mobility and strength. It makes sense to go back to the ground to help recover that mobility and strength that often diminishes with poor daily postures and general inactive lifestyles. In a recent study by Araujo in 2012, the ability to sit and rise from the floor was identified as a predictor of all cause-mortality. This means that the required mobility and strength required to get on and off the ground translates to longevity.
