NEW MELT Roller Workshop

Most of us have heard of foam rollers and typically think of forcefully rolling out our muscles on a hard piece of plastic. MELT foam rollers are completely different. The movements aren’t forceful or painful and in fact, MELT focuses on promoting overall health by improving cell proliferation. So, instead of focusing on increasing the blood flow to major muscle groups like traditional foam rollers have done, MELT uniquely rejuvenates each cell by relieving stuck stress and increasing hydration to the collagen matrix. Sounds technical? Come join us on November 12 at Powers of One Yoga Studio as we learn the roller techniques and explain how MELT works. Click HERE to be taken to our event page on Facebook and HERE to purchase your tickets.

We will see you there!

Health Benefits of Pilates for Athletes

Pilates can be one of the best exercise programs that an athlete becomes involved in, and there are many health benefits to him or her. Pilatesis one of the most common forms of exercise, and it can really help an athlete throughout his or her athletic career.

Here are three of the best general health benefits that Pilates can provide for an athlete, no matter what his or her fitness level is.

Can Improve Strength and Flexibility

One of the biggest health benefits to an athlete when it comes to Pilates is that it can improve flexibility and strength. Pilates requires a lot of different movements and stances, similar to yoga, which means that the muscles will become more flexible over time. Pilates is known to work out the whole body, which means that no muscle will be overworked, and no muscles will be left untouched by the workout. Pilates will improve strength in many different areas of the body, such as the legs and arms, which can help an athlete during sports. An athlete that practices Pilates will notice his or her legs, thighs, ankles, arms, and chest are stronger, and it will also improve overall flexibility during athletic activities. If an athlete is just starting out in a sport, Pilates can help him or her improve strength without the stress of weights, and it can help him or her find a natural rhythm on the field.

Can Improve Concentration

Pilates is all about concentration and centering the mind with the body, so concentration is essential for improving overall health. An athlete that participates in Pilates will notice an increase in his or her concentration during sports, due to this connection that is so vital during the Pilates exercises. Pilates focuses more on the quality of the exercises than the quantity, which means that more emphasis is placed on concentration, as well as controlling the movements. An athlete that participates in Pilates might notice he or she is able to focus easier during stressful situations, and it can also help him or her improve anxiety or depression. Concentration is vital for an athlete, because if he or she becomes too involved with the environment around him or her, then it is likely he or she will make mistakes or get injured. Pilates can help an athlete control his or her mental state, even during a game, and it can really help him or her improve on the field.

Can Improve Breathing Technique

An athlete that performs Pilates exercise routines will also notice his or her breathing is better, which is vital for athletic performance. Pilates is often focused on controlling the mind and the body, which means that there are certain breathing techniques that need to be used, which can provide many health benefits. If an athlete learns better breathing techniques because of Pilates, it can help him or her decrease stress, get more oxygen to the lungs, and improve his or her running game. An athlete with poor breathing techniques will not be very successful in sports, because breathing correctly is vital for maximum performance. Pilates can help an athlete start breathing deeper, which can increase oxygen to the lungs, and can also increase blood flow through the body. Pilates generally uses breathing techniques to enhance the mind and body connection, since breathing is part of the mental awareness. It is also important that an athlete breathe properly during sports because it can reduce the amount of energy needed, which can help him or her build stamina during physical exertion. Pilates is one of the best ways that an athlete can change his or her breathing habits for the better, which can help him or her live a healthier lifestyle, on and off the field.
