OM SHANTI Pilates Reformer
At Om Shanti Academy the physical exercise becomes conscious and merging with the practice of the spirit, offering empowerment, healing and self-knowledge. Highly experienced teachers of the Pilates Equipment method (Reformer) deliver courses customized for all levels.
What is the Pilates Reformer method
As originally named by its founder J. Pilates, Pilates is “The Art of Control” or “Contrology”. The Pilates method has been developed through the study and design of alternative ways of approaching the body, focusing on each person’s individuality, overcoming the limited context of applying a simple fitness method, so as to result in a full study of the human body. The Pilates Equipment method with the special Pilates beds (Reformer) combines the awakening, revitalization and balance between the kinesiological and energy approach with great results, thus contributing to the psychosomatic health of the practitioner. Sessions in Pilates Reformer beds emphasize on the different needs of each body as well as the complete healing of each individual.
“RETURN TO LIFE through CONTROLOGY“
“The center of our body is the source of kinetic energy and power“
Pilates Method – Therapy and Training
Pilates Reformer method for therapy
The basis and the goal of the Pilates Reformer method is the balance of “body &spirit”. The energy flow is balanced through physiotherapeutic, kinesiological and respiratory practices. As a result the energy flows properly through the chakras. During the Pilates Reformer course, practitioners develop the consciousness of movement, merging the mind (concentration) with the body (motion). Practicing Pilates Reformer is considered therapeutic as it prevents and restores troubles and injuries of the spine, neck, waist and knees.
Pilates Reformer method training
During Pilates Reformer training, the muscles are strengthened and stretched, bringing the body to its ideal posture and shape. The musculoskeletal system becomes resistant to possible future injuries. The body becomes aligned, as any asymmetries that have been caused by dysfunctional habits of the modern lifestyle, are being restored.
Who can attend Pilates Reformer classes
The Pilates Reformer method is aimed for everybody, regardless of age and physical condition. It is a mild form of exercise for pregnant women and safe for the elderly. On the other hand, Pilates Reformer can become a dynamic exercise for athletes, gymnasts and dancers and ideal for those looking for a completely different way of exercise and life. The concept of personalized program is successfully applied to everyone, regardless of physical condition, age and lifestyle.
