The modern world is fast-moving and filled with technology, unrealistic demands, and conflict. Everyone feels some anxiety from time to time, but when we let anxiety take charge, our sense of reality gets distorted and we cannot function well. Our thoughts can become like a speeding and derailed train, and it can take effort on our part to get it under control again. With its focus on breathing, concentrating, and staying in the present moment, Pilates takes us off of the speeding train. At Mongoose Bodyworks, our skilled Pilates instructors can help you reclaim your mental focus.
The effects of chronic anxiety on the body are insidious. Anxiety may be harming you and you may not even be aware of it. Anxiety interferes with the functioning of the body on almost every level. It interferes with your ability to sleep, digest food, and oxygenate your body. Anxiety also creates tension in various muscles and causes your endocrine system to secrete stress hormones that can result in weight gain, craving unhealthy foods, and jumping at the slightest noise. Part of your practice in learning Pilates will be to reconnect with your body and recognize when anxiety is taking over to intervene before too much damage is done.
