Because Pilates is a gentle training that makes the facia malleable and resilient, it provides sustainability and longevity for your physical wellbeing.
In a day and age where we live long passed our career, we prepare for a healthy and vigorous quality of life well into our old age.
Myofascial Training strengthens not only muscles, but also the stability, agility, stamina and coordination of a body as a whole. Not only a singular muscle alone, but the surrounding connective tissue (the fascia) is trained and improved.
Fascia is a network distributed throughout the body that connects our deep and superficial structures, gives us our form and holds us together as a whole.
Fascia has a high density of proprioceptors and nerve endings. Proprioceptors give us the information we need to perceive how the position and movement of the body is in space at any time. The nerve endings have influence on the movement control and the vegetative nervous system. Fascia therefore plays an important role in muscle function and transmission.
The focus in Pilates Myofascial Training is to ask for greater mobility, train muscle chains across multiple joints and stimulate the connectivity between different body parts.
