Chi Pilates

Out of the shadows of light came Chi Pilates into my life and as silent as silk I fell under the spell of it’s energy and rhythm.

It’s like an act of magic, except it’s real. Your body’s muscles have memory and that memory can be of trauma, trapped within for years before being released. For some, they never enter that field of dreams or allow themselves the joy of finding a revived youthfulness as you age. Our bodies hold secrets to everything we need to know. Your body houses the most spectacular and beautiful memories, challenges, lessons and freedom from confusion, resentment and judgment.

That energy and rhythm is mirrored in nature. Take this opportunity to find your own rhythm in your Chi Pilates experience.

Chiball

ChiBall – Yin Yang

Chiball Method Remedial Pilates

These exercises are of a remedial nature and are designed to help clients recovering from injury such as scapula issues, lower back pain, and pelvic instabilities where core muscle weakness, lumber spine discomfort and scapula misalignment has become  a distributing factor

When the body experiences pain the stabilisers in the area become subject to pain inhibition and do not necessarily  recover spontaneously when the pain subsides. The purpose of remedial pilates is to trigger the reactivation of these muscles in order to regain and improve stability, mobility and strength.

Spinal Motor Control

  • pelvic floor
  • transverse abdominus
  • deep lumber multifidus
  • diaphragm

Pelvic Motor Control  

Here we work on hoe to use the stabilizer muscles of the pelvic girdle to facilitate greater quality of movement. The particular muscles we work on include:

  • core muscles
  • gluteal muscles
  • other muscles of the hip joints

Scapula Motor Control  

Here we focus how to use the stabiliser muscles of the upper quadrant to facilitate greater quality of movement rather than strength or power. The particular muscles we work on include:
