This winter will see our immune systems challenged with so many Flu’s and Viruses going around! This led me to do some research around building a better defence against these nasty bugs. Can Reformer Pilates help strengthen our immune system, well the answer is yes!
Reformer Pilates can help boost your immune system in several ways
- Reformer Pilates can help reduce stress levels, which is a major contributor to weakened immune systems.
- Reformer Pilates can assist improve circulation, which can help your body’s immune cells move more effectively throughout your body.
- Reformer Pilates can improve your respiratory function, which can help your body better oxygenate your cells and remove waste products.
- Reformer Pilates can help improve your posture, which can help reduce the risk of developing back pain and other musculoskeletal issues that can contribute to weakened immune systems.
In addition to Pilates, Sunshine and Garlic daily has also been proven to increase our immunity and ability to fight off colds and flu’s. Try spending 5 minutes before your class sitting on our deck to soak up some winter sunshine as you enjoy the Scarborough Beach view. And if the instructors at Body Reformers start to smell like garlic, well you know why LOL !
Overall, Pilates can be a great way to improve your overall health and boost your immunity, so looking great is just a bonus this winter!
