What is Pilates for Neurological Disorders®?
Pilates for Neurological Disorders® is designed specifically for those people that have been diagnosed with MS, CP, Parkinson's, Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke, Dystonia, Scoliosis, Arthritis and the aging athlete. Every client manifests their particular disorder differently. Each session will focus on your common problematic muscle groups and symptoms including but not limited to: balance issues, weakness, and gait abnormalities. Movement should feel good and we will challenge the brain's neuroplasticity by learning new movement patterns and creating new neuromuscular pathways. Having fun "gamification" is important just as is intense exercises to challenge new pathways. Teaching functional exercises improves strength and provides functional improvements to assist gait and balance. Your session might include any combination of the following pieces of equipment: Cadillac, Reformer, JuvoBoard®, Ladder barrel, Mat exercises etc. Our goal is to meet you where you are and get you moving to where you want to be.
