For seniors, Pilates exercises offer a long list of strong points—coming from both the exercise and physical activity in general, as well as the specific principals of the Pilates method itself. The aging process affects our bodies in ways that Pilates can hedge against and even reverse to a certain degree.
One example of how Pilates helps seniors is posture and spine health. Over time, gravity compresses the bones of our spine. Impact from activity and long periods of sitting or standing in life only multiplies gravity’s effects. Pilates works to lengthen all the connections into the spine.

The best Pilates exercises are those that seniors can perform, enjoy, and feel better after!
