The Parsonson’s Support Group I joined had a marvelous guest speaker today.
Mr Yuiska, PT, Sports Physical Therapist although retired he has a free website. And for the people in the Villages, he offers a free exercise class each Monday.
His Mantra: “Sit Less..Move More”
He has so very many training videos and helpful tips. PLEASE go pick his brain. I am going to copy a little of hi message he shared today: “Learn to improve balance and decrease falls, strengthen yoour body and improve your lifestyle utilizing Pilates core stabilization/proper posture.”
What is Pilates Posture?? stand erect, by elongating the spine, keep the head on the shoulders, not the chest. Breathe out and pull belly button upwards/backwards to the spinepulling pelvis up and level. Y\Think of the pelvis as a bucket, keeping it level. Breathe out maintaining the level pelvis.”
