Why Classical Pilates?

Why Classical Pilates?

What is Classical Pilates?

Classical Pilates is an exercise method designed to strengthen mind and body by working them in tandem, creating a strong core and lean muscle. Joseph Pilates studied the human body, stretching, and myriad exercise methods before creating ‘Contrology,’ or what we now know as Pilates. Classical Pilates training adheres to Joseph Pilates original intentions so that each unique exercise is taught with a dynamic rhythm.

Pilates for Seniors: You are as young as you feel!

Pilates for Seniors: You are as young as you feel!

The classical Pilates method is exercise for everyone. It is as powerful for those who already exercise as it is for those who can’t do higher impact activities anymore. Whether you are fit or out of shape, young or not so young, Pilates training will improve the quality of your life.

To begin, find your neighborhood Pilates studio. For a Venice Pilates studio and Marina del Rey Pilates studio, Turning Point Pilates is the perfect place to connect with friendly, knowledgeable instructors who will take into account all of your individual needs. Often flexibility, balance and endurance are concerns as we age. These issues and many more are addressed, and will improve, if Pilates is practiced regularly.

Turning Point Pilates | The Canals Magazine

Robin Solo and Turning Point Pilates is in the latest issue of The Canals Magazine -- a publication for the Venice Canals Community of Venice Beach, CA.

 

When and how did you first explore Pilates? I was working in commercial and film production for 12 years and at some point it wasn't satisfying on a deep level. I knew I wanted to do some- thing more fulfilling. I was taking Pilates and loved it and the equipment and decided to pursue the certification.

 

How has Pilates benefited your life? When I was younger I was fairly closed emotionally. Being of service, working inti- mately with people's bodies, and speaking intimately at times too, forced me out my comfort zone, really pushed me out my shell where my heart opened and compassion swelled. Addi- tionally, how awesome is it to have a job where there's little ego BS and mainly gratitude and good vibes?

5 Healthy Living Tips from Turning Point Pilates in Venice

   Robin Solo from Turning Point Pilates in Venice shares 5 Healthy Lifestyle Tips  with Abbot Kinney First Fridays that will help you look good and feel good at any time of the year! (Of course, it is summer and  we all want to look really good!)

Robin Solo from Turning Point Pilates in Venice shares 5 Healthy Lifestyle Tips  with Abbot Kinney First Fridays that will help you look good and feel good at any time of the year! (Of course, it is summer and  we all want to look really good!)

1- Eat breakfast or something in the AM!. This  gives you energy to start your day, improves concentration and productivity.

2- Doing something active is doing something positive for yourself. Make the time!, Try walking, try Pilates, a Krav Maga class, yoga. Movement is key to health!

3- A flatter tummy can be yours. Do Pilates 3x a week for a month! The practice requires constant abdominal engagement with attention to drawing them in and up,  Your abs hold your organs in and support your back too!

4- Start exercising at any age. Get up your gumption and start! Exercise is proven to increase mental function, memory, endurance, balance, strength and will elevate your mood. There are so many choices, experiment, you may try something you love!

5- HYDRATE! Every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to function correctly. Fluids remove waste, control body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and aid metabolism Poor hydration weakens the body's immune system leading to illness sickness and premature aging!
