Pilates Anytime: Exercise for a Strong Spine
In Class 5 of Functional Health, learn how you could help keep your back in top shape
Welcome to the fifth class of instructor Joy Puleo’s Functional Health series, from Pilates Anytime, an online streaming platform.
It is said that Joseph Pilates, the founder of the exercise method, believed that a person is only as old as their spine. The spine has wisdom and strength that can translate to all parts of the body. In this 30-minute Pilates mat class, you will learn how to help keep your spine strong, supple and wise. This class offers modifications for all fitness levels and beginners are welcome.
Please consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.
