Here they share another great tip on questions to ask before taking a Pilates Class:

What you should know – Finding an accredited Pilates Instructor

 

 

Pilates requires a skilled and knowledgeable teacher to guide the exercises to prevent injury. Pilates Method Alliance TM is the international, not-for-profit, professional association dedicated to the teachings of Joseph and Clara Pilates. Its mission is to protect the public through certification and continuing standards such as an international exam for Pilates professionals.

When thinking about taking a Pilates class, ask:

  • What Pilates training does the instructor have?
  • What other complimentary training does the instructor have?
  • What certification do they carry?
  • Is it internationally recognized?
  • How many hours did they need to complete their certification?
  • How long has the instructor been teaching?
  • What liability do they carry?
  • What is the class size?
  • What will you take away from the program? 

 

Pilates programs are designed on an individual basis of working with your body with its strengths and limitations. It is imperative that you chose a qualified and certified instructor.

Saskatoon’s Pilates Training Centre is committed to maintaining the high standards as set by the PMA. Please join Kathy Bond and her teaching associates, Bets Eidem, Tanis Lee, Valerie Verot-Leister, Christie Bodnarchuk, Patsy Brucks, Alice Kuipers, Kristen Meyers and interning teachers as they provide quality instruction in a nuturing and professional environment.

Here they share a very informative tip that explains Pilates:

The Pilates Method 

Pilates is a method of exercise developed by German-born Joseph Pilates. In 1926, Joseph and Clara Pilates brought their exercise system, originally called “Contrology”, to New York City. The Pilates method is a physical movement program designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body.

Pilates exercise focuses on postural symmetry, breath control, abdominal strength, spine, pelvis and shoulder stabilization, muscular flexibility, joint mobility and strengthening through the complete range of motion of all joints. Instead of isolating muscle groups, the whole body is trained, integrating the upper and lower extremities with the trunk. 

 

The PILATES system of exercises reawakens the mind-body connection for optimal physical conditioning. By emphasizing a mental awareness and a deep understanding of how the body moves, Pilates imprints efficient movement patterns that cross over into our everyday lives.

This revolutionary approach to fitness is suitable for all ages and body types. Whether the goal is to enhance a sporting or performance activity, rehabilitation from chronic pain or injury, or simply to gain a more active, healthy lifestyle, Pilates has something to offer everyone.

Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. The guiding principles of the Pilates Method are whole body health, whole body commitment, and breath.

With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavor itself, but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.

 

Not Designed to be Aerobic:

Pilates exercise was never designed to be aerobic nor did Joseph claim that his exercises were aerobic. Recent research has supported this statement in showing that Beginner Mat Pilates is low-moderate intensity and Intermediate and Advanced Mat work meets the criteria for moderate intensity activities. (Olsen, et al 2003)

 

 

Not Only for Elite or Wealthy:

Joseph Pilates suggested that everyone should do his exercises everyday. To book a private session with a Pilates teacher should be considered in the same arena as booking time with a massage therapist or personal trainer at a cost of $50-$100 per hour. Pilates teachers also recommend that their clients practice Pilates exercises everyday or at least 3-4 times per week at home to supplement their training in the studio.

 

Not Only for Healthy or Well:

Joseph Pilates also modified his method of exercise based on whether his client had injuries. Pilates can be modified for unfit, post-trauma, post-disease, elderly, and has been shown to increase enjoyment and participation in exercise even for children. (Ickes 2005, Jago 2005)  

 

Pilates is Not Fusion:

Pilates is performed on a mat or apparatus that Joseph Pilates designed: Reformer, Trapeze Table, Wunda Chair, High Back Chair, Ladder Barrel, Half Barrel, Spine Corrector, Ped-O-Pul, Head Harness, Foot Corrector, Toe Corrector, Magic Circle, Bean Bag and Pinwheel. Pilates is not performed in a pool, on a small or large ball or in combination with other forms of exercise and still called Pilates. Today, it is certainly

acceptable to apply the principles to all forms of movement, exercise, sports and daily life activities as Joseph intended. 

 

Purist vs. Modified Pilates:

The PMA believes that Pilates should evolve along with the advances of modern science, maintaining the integrity of the method with the safety and health of its participants always in mind. This means that if an exercise is determined to be contra-indicated or unsafe we will respect it as historical repertoire and modify it or delete it from any client’s program that might be injured by performing the exercise.

Here is an email they received from a happy client!~

" I am a client of yours. My name, as you can see is Ralph. I workout at Fitness Focus and have been "trained" by Chris for approx 25-30 sessions thus far. This is simply an email of praise regarding what Chris has been able to do...how he has kept me focussed...committed...diligent...and how knowledgable he is in your profession. I have been fortunate enough to have represented our country in two seperate sports...so I am used to HARD training, I am accustomed to DEDICATION, HONESTY, SAFETY and all of the aspects that need to be focussed on, recognized, and acknowledged. Chris has pushed me farther than any rugby coach I have had the chance to play under...and that includes National coaches, International coaches, and Professional club coaches. This is simply a quick email to thank you and your staff and training procedures...and especially an email to let you know that you have one hell of a trainer in your midst. Thanks again. "  Cheers, Ralph.
