We all know that movement tops the list of evidence-based strategies to prevent and heal from almost any malady, which is why you do your best to get in as much of it as you can.
But lately, you’ve been remembering what it felt like in those moments when you were in peak form — like you could conquer the world. You are craving the kind of movement that allows you to….
- move as gracefully as a leopard
- climb a mountain to see breathtaking views
- bring a child into the world and care for them with ease
- explore the world, confident of your strength and resilience
At Lemon Tree Wellness, we know that how you move through the world is part of how you communicate who you are. Ready to begin?
Pilates helps to re-pattern inefficient movement patterns so that you can move past pain, tension, and repetitive injuries.
Want to get rid of that nagging injury for good, and maybe even understand why it cropped up in the first place?
Pilates is a powerful system of holistic, full-body movements that can correct disorganized patterns and alignment issues in the body. Human brains are so intelligent, they will signal the body to take “short cuts” when they perceive that a particular way of movement is more efficient. This is where the trouble starts, because these “short-cuts” often involve recruitment of muscles that aren’t optimal to achieve the task at hand, which can result in tension, strain, and over time, even injury.
Having a qualified guide, a teacher to help motivate and show you a next foothold on your journey can prevent you from plateauing, getting in a rut that leads to repetitive strain, and is certain to help you stick with your goals. Train smarter, not harder, and experience the pride of summiting that mountain of your dreams, whatever form it takes in your life.
Our programs are ideal for you if you are…
healing from an illness, surgery, or pregnancy and childbirth
desire a greater sense of freedom and spaciousness in your movement
feel drawn to movement as a way to improve your confidence, energy level, and mental health
want to up-level the way you move
