Pilates enhances overall well-being through a variety of exercises, focusing on core strength and functional movement.

With over 600 variations, it combines breath and movement to engage both major and minor muscle groups. Pilates aligns the body, supports joints, and improves strength, balance, and coordination. Its adaptability promotes freedom of movement and reduced discomfort.

Pilates is inclusive and suitable for people of all backgrounds and fitness levels.

Pilates is an excellent choice for individuals recovering from shoulder, knee, or hip injuries who aim to transition back to more intense workout routines or sports activities.

Shoulder: Pilates provides effective shoulder strengthening exercises that are gentle on the joints, making it a useful stepping stone towards more vigorous gym-based resistance training.

Hip: While exercises like squats and lunges are essential for functional movement, they often focus on movement in a single plane. Pilates, with its lighter resistance, incorporates movements in multiple planes, including external and internal rotation, promoting safe and complete hip extension.

Knee: Knee injuries commonly result in weakened glute and quad muscles as the body compensates to protect the knee. Pilates is beneficial for knee pain rehabilitation as it emphasizes activating and strengthening these muscle groups, aiding in the recovery process.

 

At its essence, Pilates promotes enhancement of mobility and strength across all major muscle groups, with a central emphasis on deep core muscles. Good posture, flexibility, strength, balance, and body awareness actively improves with regular Pilates.

Pilates and Yoga are somewhat alike but differ in their methods. Both can be done in groups and on mats, but Pilates uses more equipment.

While both focus on connecting mind and body, Pilates focuses more on balancing strength and flexibility, improving movement, and posture through exercises.

Pilates is also often used for rehabilitation because it emphasises precise movements.

Just like with any workout routine, consistency is important. It helps you not only see but also feel the results.

Regular Pilates sessions will make your body stronger and more toned, improve your flexibility, and give you more energy for your daily activities.

Remember, though, that everyone’s body responds differently to exercise, so results may vary from person to person.

The Lyno® Method approach looks at the whole body to find areas where both physical and emotional stress have led to stiffness in the connective tissues (fascia), which can result in long-term pain and repeated injuries.

Using a gentle method, we help trigger the body’s relaxation response to release the stiffness in the fascia, allowing the body to restore its normal function by fixing the nerve connections.

Whether you’re dealing with longstanding pain from an old injury or experiencing unexplained discomfort, Lyno® therapy offers solutions for chronic and recurring injuries.

It is not a quick fix, Lyno® sessions break bad habits and dysfunctional movement patterns, and then continues the effort until new patterns become the natural patterns and you no longer experience chronic pain.

The Lyno® Method helps prevent injuries effectively. It’s strongly suggested to have your body alignment checked before starting any exercise routine to avoid injuries before they occur.

While both Lyno® Therapy and Physiotherapy aim to improve physical health, they differ in their approaches, focus areas, and techniques used.

The Lyno® Method targets fascia mobility specifically by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, restoring mobility – while physiotherapy addresses a broader range of musculoskeletal conditions using various techniques.

After your first Lyno session, you may notice an initial improvement in your range of movement, which could last for 2-3 days from the fascia release.

How long you’ll need Lyno sessions depends on the cause and how long you’ve had the injury/chronic pain. The tightness or tension limiting your movement is your body’s way of protecting itself. When you’re injured (emotionally or physically), your body reduces movement to maintain stability and control.

To truly address chronic pain and injury, new habits and natural movement patterns need to be established.
