Women Over 60’s Class

What you can expect from your Pilates Class

As we age we become more susceptible to inflammation, brittleness of the bones and our ability to coordinate lessens. However movement slows this process down and what better way to enjoy movement than attending a Pilates class!

At Carshalton Pilates classes for the over 60’s, you can expect to do some chair & wall Pilates and classic mat work using plenty of props to enhance your workout. These props include foam rollers, hand & ankle weights, gliders, resistance bands, Pilates rings, soft Pilates balls and booty band.

The main difference of the over 60’s class is the addition of more rest between exercises, a slower paced class, time built in to ask questions and to get more help to enable you to undertake the move to the best of your ability.

Pilates has many benefits including improvement to posture, supporting back health and decreasing back pain, developing core strength through strength training, flexibility improvement, mobility and coordination. Pilates can help with the development of bone density, which reduces as we age and is safe for those with osteopenia or osteoporosis if the teacher is qualified to work with these conditions. 

Actively engaging in exercise consistently supports our daily functional task skills, helping us stay independent for longer. But another benefit for the older practitioner is the sense of community support and the social engagement of the others in the class. After our Tuesday morning session we always offer tea, coffee and a chat to enhance social engagement.
