Event description

Description

Pilates is an effective body-conditioning routine designed to increase physical endurance, flexibility, posture, co-ordination, and core strength. It involves focused, controlled movements that can be modified to create different levels of difficulty.

As a runner, doing Pilates can help you in many ways:

  • It helps to identify any weak areas that may effect your running technique. It will provide you with muscular cues to help you fire and strengthen muscles that help you maintain a better running posture, which in turn will reduce the risk of injury and overuse.
  • A strong, balanced body helps you maintain proper form as you fatigue. Pilates helps you loosen your hips, legs and back, all helping you keep a fluid, long stride.
  • Pilates can decrease your recovery time after injury or a strenuous workout by increasing joint mobility, improving flexibility and body awareness.
  • Pilates breathing encourages you to use your diaphragm and control your inhalation/exhalations to assist with movement – this translates into better control during running.
  • Pilates helps to improve hip, pelvic and lumbar spine mobility & flexibility, through the movements and stretches.

If you've never done any Pilates before but heard all anout the benefits, why not comre along and give it a try at one of our taster classes. At the 1 hour class you'll be led through a series of Pilates exercises that are particularly beneficial for runners. You'll also have the chance to ask the Physio or Sports Therapist who leads the class any injury related questions you may have.

Places are limited, so booking is essential. We are asking for a £10 donation for each ticket which wil be donated to our chosen chrity this year, The Brain Tumour Charity.
