What will we cover in this course?

I focus on 6 key areas in my Pilates course to ensure all-round benefits

We all know breathing is important to us - we can’t function without it. But it’s also one of the most effective (and free) stress management tools if we can learn how to use it properly. These days, more than ever, teens experience stresses from a postural perspective as well as a mental one. These pressures exacerbate breathing patterns. By connecting with the breath, they can bring awareness to whether their breath is short and shallow or long and expansive. They can also feel the benefit in how simply unclenching the jaw, dropping the shoulders and opening up the chest can change their whole perspective, whether they be at School, University or at home.
“If breathing is the physical key to attaining mind- body awareness, then concentration is the mental key” (Balanced Body) How is this relevant to teens? So often, there seems to be disconnect between the mind/body connection. Mindful, coordinated movements help focus the mind and reduce stress. By focussing the attention inwards, teens can develop the movement skills and patterns necessary to work different limbs in different positions. This increased body awareness then translates into their daily activities, be that sitting at the desk or running on the football pitch.
Centering is one of the fundamentals of Pilates and refers to the connection between the mind and body, as well as the centre (also called your core, or the powerhouse) of the body. Pilates focuses on strengthening this centre in order to support the spine, the internal organs and posture. Why is this important to teens? Modern day technology and increased sitting has means that our core (and posture) is lacking.
Pilates was originally called Contrology, so it’s not surprising that one of its central principles is all about “control”. The Pilates method promotes a mind/body connection to ensure proper, safe and complete muscle control. Why is this helpful for teens? It affords them the strength to be able to control movement from the centre/core. It also instils an awareness of posture, strength and flexibility before ageing forces their hands.
Precision does not mean perfection. None of us are perfect. What it requires instead is precision in the execution of each exercise. Why is this relevant to teens? Their bodies grow at such a rate and are still developing successful movement patterns. By supporting and educating the teen about instigating correct technique, and feeling length rather than compression, they will be able to get the most out of their body and mind in order to do something positive for themselves and their movement.
Flow is involved in every Pilates exercise. Flow and ease of movement requires the coordination of the mind and body to ensure pain free, functional movement. This is helpful for teens because once they experience what good movement and flow feels like, they can carry it through into their everyday lives.
