Pilates : Keeping children in good posture

“Sit up straight, straighten your back, stop slouching in your seat ….” Refrains often heard by children. Pilates pays particular attention to the back, especially in children. It teaches them to stand better, and to correct bad posture, from the age of 6.

The child will first become aware of his or her posture, and acquire the right reflexes to improve it. The exercises are fun and easy to do. Depending on the child’s age, it’s possible to correct bad habits to relieve, or even eliminate, simple back pain. From age 6 upwards, the focus is on postural balance itself. For their age, they have big muscles and deep abs. The session can be held with or without a parent present.
