MSpilates - burley in wharfedale

Hi is anybody interested in attending a Pilates group? It is specifically for peoples with MS run by a specialised Pilates instructor. It has made a huge difference to my mobility. Going is worth it’s weight in gold! Please let me know if your interested Sarah x

Hello

I have just made an enquiry to a local Pilates group which would be very convenient for me. It’s a beginners group so I hope that it’s ok for me as I use crutches to walk longer distances. My balance isn’t too bad but needs some improvement.

i was referd to a neuro physio for a 4 week course she showed me how to do pilates excercises for my balance,and she made sure i was doing them properly too,which is very important,as if you are doing them wrong they wont work,

i find it helped me a lot.

Anyone who has the chance of going to a Pilates class - do. You will be amazed how it will help with your mobility - even problems you have had for years can be helped. l have started having one-to-one hour sessions - had 4 now. This is since having a hip and knee replacement. l am so much stronger - Core Strength is the key to most of our difficulties. l think it helps mentally and physically.

To-day - in the session - l managed to stand up from sitting without having to hold onto anything. l did it several times. lt was only a couple of months ago l thought l would be permanently in a wheelchair.

lf you get the chance of a one-to-one - do try it for a few sessions to get you started. l shall be joining a class of four soon. l do the ‘floor exercises’ on a treatment bed as l still cannot get up off the ground. But l am confident that l will manage it soon.

Wow space jacket you took the words right out of my mouth. I can climb stairs something I haven’t been able to do in years. I had a relapse not so long ago and missed 3 weeks and you could really tell. This group is only small and because of that and because the instructor specializes in MS she really picks up on your individual needs
