Women's Health

Many types of people, at many levels of fitness, runners or golfers, tennis players or new moms who have begun doing Pilates exercises say they've seen improvements in range of motion, flexibility, circulation, posture, and abdominal and overall body strength. What's not commonly known is that the effectiveness of Pilates stretches far beyond getting people stronger, improve posture and cure back pain.  Its correct application has shown significant improvements in bone health (Osteoporosis), hormone balance, mood swings, depression (Menopause), pelvic floor strengthening (Incontinence), and a decreased chance of lymphedemia and an increased range of motion and strength in the scapular and upper back muscles (Breast Cancer).
