Pilates for Rehabilitation – Why Polestar?
What is Pilates?
Developed over 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates and his wife Clara, Pilates is a proven exercise system using spring-based equipment to stretch and strengthen the whole body from the core to the extremities. Using precise movements, breathing techniques and concentration, Pilates delivers a full-body workout while it centers your mind.
What is Polestar Pilates?
The Polestar Pilates approach integrates Pilates with current scientific findings to create balanced, elongated muscles, improved posture and ease of movement. Discover why athletes, dancers, entertainers, models, rehab patients and those seeking a healthier, more beautifully sculpted body use Polestar Pilates.
Polestar Pilates applies current research and practice in orthopedics, sports medicine and movement science to the principles originated by Joseph Pilates. Our extensive background in rehabilitation and movement science expands on Pilates’ principles by adding manual skills, advanced body awareness and principles from motor control theory.
Polestar uses state-of-the-art Balanced Body® Pilates equipment. It’s made of tough, durable rock maple with a classic design that is sleek, beautiful and effective. Polestar gets you “in tune” with your body by concentrating on proper alignment and smooth movement. Many other exercise programs take a “body parts” approach, with isolated exercises for each muscle group. Polestar trains the whole body in smooth, continuous movements, elongating and strengthening at the same time. The result: muscles that are long and strong.
The program dramatically improves strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and posture. It creates a body that looks long and lean, with slender thighs, flat abdominal muscles and a strong back.
The workout is surprisingly relaxing and revitalizing. It’s gentle enough for mothers-to-be, yet challenging enough for the super-fit. It’s a program that works for everyone, regardless of age or condition.
