Asked what she likes best about Pilates, Joanie Agosti responds:
“Several things – Its accessibility to people of all ages & fitness levels; the benefit of increased body awareness that has a wonderful side effect of improved posture; and that everything you learn in Pilates applies to everyday life (functional exercise) and every other type of exercise!”
“I’ve been teaching Pilates now for over 10 years, and I still have frequent “aha” moments, when I learn something new about how the human body moves.”
As we age, our musculature and balance deteriorate. Pilates addresses those issues through developing eccentric strength – long, lean musculature – and pelvic & spinal stability. In Joanie’s opinion, it is the best type of exercise for baby boomers, especially.
