Do you need a consultation before a class.

For Natasha classes you must have a consultation, Natasha would recommend having one when starting any classes, so you know what to expect from the class. You can meet the instructor asking any questions but also so the instructor can meet you and learn about your health and fitness before starting a class, the instructor can then adapt the moves for your general needs.

If you find classes don’t work for you or its too scary to start due to a lot of chronic back pain or medical concerns, instructors also offer private classes which you can start off with to get your confidence and gain a personal understanding of your own body which can resolve any individual concerns you may have before joining a class.

What is Pilates

Pilates is a series of exercises that involves working muscles from the inside out. This means changing the way our bodies have become accustomed to working due to environmental pressures, lifestyle, occupation, stress, injuries, and illness. Pilates helps re-educate the brain on how it controls the muscles by adjusting the firing order in which muscles are recruited, in turn correcting muscular imbalance, restoring alignment and posture, bringing back homeostasis within the body’s systems and maximising energy efficiency.

Pilates trains your body to be at its best, its individual to everyone depending what they need. If you are very flexible you might also be unstable therefore needing to strengthen the muscles, if you are strong you might be stiff therefore needing more flexibility and mobility. Pilates creates secure muscles that are strong, stable and flexible, so we work to our best ability.

One of Natasha's favorite Joseph Pilates quotes is;

"If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.”

Who is Pilates suitable for?

Pilates is suitable for all ages, abilities and can be adapted depending on your requirements. Natasha believe that prevention is better than cure, so if you feel fit and don’t have any concerns with your body Pilates can still help you avoid things in the future keeping the body at its best.

The clients in this image are a good example of the different ages ranges in Natasha's classes, George is 95, Richard is 66 & Brian is 34. Pilates Classes are for all ages and abilities.

A little bit about why Natasha teaches & practices Pilates

Image
Hi I’m the owner of Polished Inside & Out, I have been in the fitness and beauty industry for over 15 years. I currently work at Daisy Haye in Leek teaching Pilates and providing health and beauty treatments to the local public. The main reason I believe in Pilates so much is due to my own back problems and chronic pain, that I now personally manage effectively via the practice of Pilates.  Many people suffer with a lifelong condition which may not have a simple cure, such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and spinal disc issues. Pilates can be very helpful to teach correct postural alignment and stabilise joints, thus empowering individuals to manage their own chronic pain.

History of Pilates

Joseph Pilates was born in Germany and gave us the building blocks for core stability and rehabilitation back in the 1920s with 34 original moves which we still use today. Joseph was an ill child and took ideas from all different sports to help build his own body to be healthy. He started work helping other at an internment camp on the isle of man. He then opened his own studio to helps athletes, and members of the public in New York, preventing or rehabilitate anyone from injuries.  It is only in the last couple of decades that sports science research has helped us see more clearly why some of his ideas when taught by others work brilliantly on some people but not on others. It depends on the knowledge and understanding of the instructors and how they adapt the moves to suit clients. Pilates only progresses when your mind and body is ready.
