Age and the Cost of Inactivity: How Pilates and Mindful Movement Can Stem the Tide
Physical activity can mitigate health care costs by keeping our increasingly aging population independent longer. Activity design needs to meet the physical challenges of natural aging while also providing a safe, effective and appropriate environment.
Mindful movement, specifically Pilates, may well prove to be an effective answer to aging and activity. Pilates is not only safe effective and appropriate, but its inwardly directed design enhances efficacy and functional ability. In this workshop, we will explore program needs for the aging, how Pilates can help stave off age-related decline and how mindful programming can increase confidence, participation, and adherence.
