People may want to learn Pilates exercises for many different reasons – from wanting to heal from an injury to simply improving their general level of strength and fitness. But can it improve your love life? Well, it can make you look and feel better, which are two things that definitely boost your confidence and can help in that department.
Sometimes, though, after a few pregnancies or prolonged period of excessive inactivity, the muscles of the pelvic floor can weaken. This can compromise a person’s ability to enjoy sex and may even lead to prolapse, or dropping, of pelvic organs like the uterus or bladder. Pilates exercises are very effective in strengthening the muscles that affect these organs. The well-trained instructors at Mongoose Bodyworks can help you with this, as well as any other personal fitness goals you have.
Although Kegel exercises are popular among women to strengthen the pelvic floor after pregnancy and delivery, they’re not the only way to achieve this goal. Pilates exercises work with the core muscles by training you to engage (and relax!) the pelvic floor during much of the exercises. The pelvic floor is composed of an essential group of muscles that form a supportive foundation for the entire trunk and body.
In the function of the human body, nothing is ever isolated, and this is especially true of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support our core strength. In Pilates, we call these “The Powerhouse.” When these muscles become weak, structural imbalances can occur, leading to back pain, inflammation, and often, to injury. Pilates exercise, when learned properly, will prevent this from happening and will help you stay active and strong.
