What is it that quality that children have, especially when you see them play, that allows them to move easily, freely, without inhibition or restriction?
Also, what are those similar qualities that you can observe in your pets on a day to day basis; their natural, in-built, grace, strength, stamina, suppleness and speed?
Why is it that we all don’t as adults, also carry these qualities naturally with us?
What can we do about it?
Movement depends on messages to and from the brain and back and forth from muscle; this happens in constant flow. The brain then remembers patterns of movement as opposed to individual muscle contractions.
By repeating correct movement patterns, you affect and improve how you move, and these messages and patterns of use then get locked into your muscle memory bank.
The incredibly flexible and adaptable systems of the body can be taught how to move correctly again. This is where Pilates is so valuable; it assists the body’s systems in reorganising themselves, and relearning those qualities that children effortlessly possess, by introducing and practicing good movement. The movements then become automatic, as the brain and the muscles remember them.
At QPilates, we will take you progressively through the stages needed to change your existing movement patterns, making sure every action is performed correctly, so that you eventually restore your natural – easy – free – without inhibition or restriction normal movement.
