Have you ever heard the saying, “Doing Pilates will make you taller?”
In reality Pilates teaches you to hold your optimal height. When you use the core muscles unconsciously after a regular Pilates practice you will stand as tall as you were built to be. Don’t allow your body to be pulled closer to the ground for another day!
Here is an article teaching some useful exercises to elongate your spine and build muscle. http://bit.ly/spinalelongation
While these exercises are great, if you low bone density avoid any forward bending, rotation or side-bending especially if you are de-conditioned. For those with Osteoporosis or low bone density, please refer to http://www.therapilates.com/osteonews.html for more information or if you are in the Denver metro area please feel free to contact me at http://corealignpilates.com/contact for dates of “Bone Safe Pilates” workshops or visit http://Americanbonehealth.org for events in other states.
