Poor Posture Derby Pilates

Addressing Poor posture

Specialist Corrective Exercise for Postural Pain and Discomfort

Poor posture results from habitually adopting a certain way of moving, standing and sitting. Over time our body develops postural sensitivities resulting in the need to sit or stand in a particular way, in order to avoid pain and discomfort. This causes muscle imbalances and tightness, resulting in reduced range of movement at the joints, muscle weakness and general day-to-day discomfort. Specialist corrective exercise restores the balance in your body.

Mindfulness and Pain Management

Set your intention to manage daily stress and anxiety by attending a weekly one hour Mindfulness class.

Our hectic lifestyles leave precious little time to care for our own health and wellbeing. Stress and anxiety often creep up on us, and before we know it we feel tired, irritable, suffer from headaches, muscle soreness and our breathing becomes shallow. Learning how to reduce tension in your body and breathe correctly reduces the harmful physiological and physical effects of stress and anxiety.
