Pilates Walk: Tips, Techniques, and Exercises for a Healthy Stride
My Mission, and the Pilates-Walk(TM) goal is to give you lots of helpful
information and exercise tips so that you can find and use the right
muscles when you walk.
Walking is one of the best whole-body wellness activities (when your form
is good). But with poor posture and bad body mechanics even a leisurely
stroll can leave you feeling worse instead of better.
To help you maximize the benefits of your walking technique, I'm going
to share with you some simple common-sense strategies and exercises
that I've found helpful for myself and my Pilates clients to fine-tune their
form to get more of the right muscles working to walk well.
Everybody walks! Whether walking is a part of your workout routine, or
just something you to do get you from one place to the next, how your
body is moving directly relates to how it feels. Poor posture and movement
habits can only lead to aches, pains, and injuries. Practicing healthy
movement habits will lead you down the road to better health!

alignment will help keep you strong, fit, flexible, and - most importantly -
