WORKING WITH Knee Pain Through Pilates

WORKING WITH Knee Pain Through Pilates

DON'T BE AFRAID TO GET BACK TO EXERCISING

The first word of advice we offer to clients recovering from ACL tears, meniscal tears, fractures, knee replacement surgery, and tendonitis is to not be afraid to get back to exercising. Knee injuries can be frightening and recovery periods can extend for longer than anticipated. Why would anyone take a chance on re-injuring themselves with exercise?

Running, leaping, and jumping jacks may be out of the question but there are many other low-impact and no-impact exercises that will help strengthen the muscles not only to help with pain and recovery, but will also improve your overall physical fitness and mental wellness. 

Fit Philosophy-14.jpg

The sources of knee pain and knee injury often stem from problems in the hips, ankles, and overall weakness of the inner thighs so it's very important to keep those muscles strong and functioning at their maximum capacity. Pilates movements have been shown to stimulate the production of synovial fluid in the body's joints which prevents friction and keeps everything hinging swimmingly - another factor in recovery. Pilates movements can be completely low impact and modified to fit your body's unique needs. 

YOUR OWN UNIQUE PACE

Our instructors are educated and trained to work with our clients to meet their individual needs and go at their own pace. For our clients with knee replacements we modify workouts so as to eliminate the need for any pressure on the knee while otherwise getting the same benefits. For ACL recovery we work with clients to move at their pace to strengthen the muscles and prevent further injury. Not sure where to start? Give us a call or sign up for one of our Pilates classes. We'll get you where you want to be!

Starting Your Day with Yoga + Pilates in the Park

Starting Your Day with Yoga + Pilates in the Park

A CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE

Taking your exercise routine outside - whether it be yoga, pilates, running or another other practice - is an opportunity to challenge yourself and receive the many mind and body benefits of fresh air, a change of perspective, and a dose of gentle morning sunlight.

There is nothing quite like being outside in the spring morning air under a soft blue sky with your yoga mat rolled out on a patch of grass. The cool of night lingers, the birds are chittering. You have devoted the next hour to reconnecting with your body, challenging yourself, and laying a strong foundation for whatever the day brings.

When you're lying on your mat you may open your eyes and take a moment to really notice the drift of clouds being moved along by wind, the intricate swoop of a robin or dragonfly, the fleeting beauty of each second. You may carry that small moment - those clouds and sky - like a pebble in your pocket long after you've rolled your mat up.

SETTING THE FOUNDATION

When you start the weekend with an energizing, vitality boosting pilates or yoga class you are setting the foundation for a productive, healthful week. Making positive changes in your life begins with a single choice. Over time your choices cobble together, unfolding into a lifetime of gratitude and that impact body, mind, and community. 

Starting on May 5, 2018 we offer pilates and yoga classes in Tower Park, a lovely and spacious park in Fort Thomas, KY. Join us Saturday mornings by the amphitheater at 8:30am for an hour of pilates on the mat with Erin. Jennifer will lead a vinyasa yoga flow class from 9:30-10:30am. Register for classes online here.
