Just like a car the body is a machine designed to work in a specific fashion. Nothing in the body works in isolation—every part has an explicit function meant to work in harmony with other parts. Our skeleton is like the chassis of a car and the quality of our posture determines whether all of the moveable parts can work effectively. Many of the body’s muscles though far away from each other are meant to work in synch and require proper posture to do so. Our body follows a mechanical model—it is a series of arches, hinges and pulleys, and learning about and understanding your body’s mechanics will allow you to effectively utilize the genius behind the body’s design.
You have to learn how the body works in order to use it correctly.
Bones hold us up; muscles move us; nerves tell the muscles to move the bones. Are you interested in learning more?
Join our newest class : “The Biology of Movement and Meditation.” People from any background can take it, we spend half our class period learning about the body (anatomy) and the other practicing movement and Pilates, then end with a meditation.
One of our clients commented on the class, “It is a great class with movement, somatic anatomy (learning about the body inside and out), and of course pilates.
Class is held on Monday from 5-6PM. For more information or to sign up, send us a note or call. Questions just ask!
