Scolio-Pilates at the Yoga Center of Medford
The Yoga Center of Medford has added a Scolio-Pilates class to its schedule to address specific back needs. The class is taught by Diane Myles, who is a Body Arts and Science International Pilates practitioner, certified in Scolio-Pilates, with more than 30 years of experience in the fitness industry.
The Center will also host a Reformer demonstration at 10 a.m. on December 7. Best known for its ability to promote core strength, flexibility, coordination and balance, the Pilates Reformer program can assist users in achieving success in weight loss, body sculpting and spinal health. Strengthening the muscles of the core is paramount in achieving defined abs, strong backs and toned buttocks and thighs. The Reformer offers a highly versatile workout accommodating all body types and levels. Private and group sessions, as well as free Reformer clinics, provide personal attention.
Scolio-Pilates is geared towards enhancing body awareness and encouraging flexibility in the back’s scoliotic curves. Research suggests that it may increase lung capacity and chest expansion and improve posture, strength and flexibility.
