Pilates for Upper Body: Balance Your Strength and Mobility
Welcome to today’s 30 minute Pilates practice to help you balance the demands of your upper body, both strength, and mobility. It is important to understand the way your shoulder girdle is meant to move and to encourage those movements so that you don’t lose your range of motion and then build strength around this ability to move.
As always, honor what your body needs today. Enjoy and let us know how it feels for you.
Be sure to listen to your body and move in a way that feels good and does not cause pain. Please leave a comment if you have any questions.
Please remember to make any modifications for your body to be safe and feel good.
Pilates is an exercise method focused on breath, control, and precision using proper alignment. This type of practice supports a healthy posture and can be a powerful tool to help you manage, and in some cases, reverse chronic pain, but it is not a complete substitute for medical care. This can be paired with meditation as well. Please consult your doctor if you have pain to assist you with a successful plan.
