Since then, Pilates has certainly made its mark in the fitness industry. From dancers to footballers, everyone is doing it, including those of us over 50. And why shouldn’t we? Pilates benefits mind and body nurturing a healthy sense of well-being, flexibility and of course, strength.

Stretching Exercises are so important whatever your age group. The question is, are you stretching correctly to gain the optimum benefits? Here are a number of essential tips.

1. Make sure, whichever part of your body you are stretching, you try to relax the WHOLE body. For example, the best position for a quad stretch is lying on the floor, on your side, holding your top ankle and drawing the knee back until you feel the tension in your quads. Lying of the floor enables you to focus, not only on relaxing the quads, but your entire body. Of course, remember also to breathe properly. You’ll find the best technique for breathing here at:

2. Hold each stretching for 2-3 minutes.

3. Don’t be tempted to “bounce” a stretch. It may cause injury.

4. Also, don’t push the stretching to think you’ll get more benefit. Work only with a gentle tension, and stretch more frequently.

5. If you’ve got time, stretch before and after exercise. If you don’t, preferable just after.For and full MENU and more information about all stretches, visit:
