Whole Body Kinetics focuses on Pilates for Structural Integration that supports the goals of Rolfing SI, utilizing a wide range of Pilates apparatus to focus on learning, improving movement choreography during private sessions. The use of spring loaded resistance facilitates spine stabilizers and core strength in all the planes of motion. This stabilization creates a healthy and efficient movement pattern by organizing the posture of the client. Pilates also helps to improve strength and flexibility and integrate extremities (arms and legs) to the spine. At Whole Body Kinetics, Pilates for Structural Integration focuses on deep core strength, postural and structural support, movement sequencing, breathing and supports the goals of the Rolfing Ten Series.
