Pilates with Felecite
Pilates with Felecite
When you allow yourself the opportunity to breathe while you correct your spinal and pelvic alignment. And focus your attention on smooth, flowing movement, you become acutely in tune with your body. If you do this regularly your body automatically will learn to realign.
Pilates is all about control. How well you are teaching your body to control your muscles? Starting with breathing. How often do you think during the day about breathing? And we forget how important breathing is. Because breathing happens automatically. When you really start to focus your attention on your breathing patterns you will find it so much easier to get through the day.
It is all about core:
Our bodies were designed to be perfect. They were however not designed to sit in chairs in front of computers all day. Or driving long distances. Or sitting again watching television. We were designed to move. Doing Pilates with Pilates with Felecite you strengthen your core muscles. The core muscles are the muscles of your Pelvic floor and the Transversus abdominus. The muscles that keep your spine aligned.
It is all about strengthening and lengthening
Do you wake up in the morning feeling all stiff and tight? Because yesterday you pushed that Bench-press at 120 kg. Or you did 200 squats?
Over-exercising ultimately leads to injury. And no exercise to a tired tight stressed body. Pilates is a program designed to focus on your specific needs. Whether you are an athlete. Or you have an impairment. Doing Pilates once or twice a week means you are training your mind to focus on continuous movement of specific muscle groups. And with continuous training these muscles become stronger. The focus and concentration on repetitive mobility of your muscles increases your awareness. Of your posture. Your gait. Your breathing.Your strength.Your health.Your performance. Retrain your body to its potential. Allow me to design a program suitable for your requirement.
The health benefits of Pilates include:
increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks (the ‘core muscles’ of your body)
balanced muscular strength on both sides of your body
enhanced muscular control of your back and limbs
improved stabilisation of your spine
rehabilitation or prevention of injuries related to muscle imbalances

Hypnosis is a tool when used clinically is designed to facilitate positive change that a person wishes to make.
In order to understand the dynamics of why you’re feeling the way you’re feeling one must be aware of the workings of the brain: The brain is separated into the conscious mind and the all powerful subconscious mind. As you are reading this now your conscious mind is operating – while the subconscious mind is regulating all your other physical functions e.g your breathing, heartbeat, eyelid blinking, etc. Subconscious mind is also controlling your emotional state and wellbeing at the same time. Recent studies show that the conscious mind can occupy itself with up to nine activities simultaneously (multi-tasking), while the subconscious mind can control any number of functions without you being aware of it. Your subconscious mind can be compared to the harddrive of a computer – it stores information from the moment of your conception. All this stored information helped create your behaviour and belief system. It is this belief system that has had a huge impact on your life. In the negative sense these manifest as stress, anxiety, anger, frustration, irritation, and more importantly continuing illnesses. With my client centred approach I will assist you in altering your negative beliefs that are the stimuli for behaviours that are holding you back – and which occurs without you knowing it.
