Had a couple of issues with balance and stiffness etc etc…Saw neuro physio , she gave me some exercises , no change really.
Started Pilates and benefits all round.
Noted a difference posture, breathing and helped with the lack of flexibility in my ankles and the social side.
Esme was this Pilates class especially for people with Parkinson’s or just a general class?
Hi Margs 1
the teacher does several levels. One of them being gentle chair Pilates . So no getting down on to the floor !!! It’s not specifically for Parkinsons, we have ladies who have had hip replacements, etc… You do have a consultation with the teacher before hand and can discuss any areas of concerns .
We do the exercises sat or stood using the chair for support., with various bits of equipment. Im sure if you find a qualified teacher she will adapted the class.
Thanks Esme for answering so quickly. Im going to find out if there are any Pilates classes in Maldon, Essex.
Unfortunately I have Parkinson’s and I broke my hip in December. I had a full hip replacement but feel i need some exercise and meet like minded people socially.
My teacher also does one to one in your home or online , worth looking out there, Im finding it really helpful
