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.

A Pilates Practice

      “For the things we have to learn before we can do them,
we learn by doing them.”    Aristotle,

And so it is with a Pilates practice. Pilates is not for the impatient. It takes practice. It takes surrender, it dares you to be a beginner and forgo instant gratification. If you can,  (or if you want to try) do as I've suggested, you will be greatly rewarded with that great feeling, the feeling of accomplishment and renewed respect for your strong and more supple body and you too will be addicted.

Here is a San Francisco transplants guide to Abbot Kinney, with a special added bonus: Recommendations on up-and-coming Rose Avenue, a hop, skip and a cruiser ride from Abbot Kinney. See article here.
