Why sitting is so bad for you….

Do you ever suffer from a numb bum at your desk?

So what we know is that sitting for hours at a desk is bad for you.  However, you have to get that assignment finished, the presentation needs to be in by 5pm and you haven’t started it yet.  The phone rings and you bend your neck to hold the phone between your ear and your shoulder as you scramble to find the relevant piece of paper on your desk the caller is questioning your about.   Sitting for long periods of time, your Joints stiffen all the way down through the body from the top of the neck through the spine to the pelvis.  Legs don’t move and the hips, knees and ankles stiffen up.  Blood pools in the feet and flows badly through the pressure points (numb bum).

So here are some helpful tips so you can get through the day without stiffening too much.

Benefits of Pilates for relaxation

Benefits of Pilates for relaxation

Pilates is a fantastic exercise to promote relaxation.

Bath Pilates Academy | Margo Singleton

Pilates doesn’t work muscles to the point of exhaustion, so there is no sweating, pain or straining. It requires concentration and focus as you move your body through a range of motion. Since all of the major muscle groups are lengthened and stretched, you improve flexibility, strength, balance and awareness, as well as aid relaxation.

Whether a beginner or advance, you can perform Pilates exercises using your own body weight, or with the help of light equipment.

5 Ways to De-stress at the Weekend

Bath Pilates Academy | 5 Ways to De-Stress at the Weekend

During a long week at work we look forward to the weekend coming, with plans to relax, unwind and de-stress. But often we spend those two precious days doing chores, running errands, watching mindless television and losing hours to social media. Rather than slowing down, we speed up. Come Monday morning we find that we’ve not truly relaxed at all and the cycle of stress begins again.

Here are some ways to make the most of your weekend by de-stressing:

  1. Pilates

A pilates class will allow you to increase your flexibility, muscle tone, joint mobility, balance and improve your posture. Taking time out for pilates will give you time to relax and renew your essential energies with a complete sense of physical and mental well-being.

Pilates and relaxation practices can help you transform your mind and body, as well as discover new ways to de-stress. At the Bath Pilates Academy, you can experience highly individual teaching and a personal commitment to transforming stress into relief so you can become healthier, happier and less stressed.
