Summary
  • "Whether the reader is an academic, a professional teacher, or a Pilates practitioner, Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core will provide profound insights into the central emphasis of the method: core stabilization. Pilates is widely accepted and utilized as a system that promotes health and proper movement patterns through the development of balanced muscles, joint alignment, and core control. Here, the six fundamental principles--Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breath, and Flow--are explained in the light of current research on neuroplasticity (the brain's capacity to reorganize itself be developing new neuronal connections), and on the function of fascia (the matrix-like connective tissue of the body). When the principles of functional anatomy are not considered during exercise application, muscle imbalances, chronic tightness, and even pain can result. Clearly written, and beautifully illustrated with over 110 full-color illustrations, Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core reveals the missing connection between functional anatomy of the core--how human bodies stabilize and move--and its application during the fundamental core exercises. Table of Contents: Chapter 1 Introduction to the Pilates Principles Chapter 2 Functional Anatomy of the Pilates Core Chapter 3 The Breathe Activation Strategy(TM) for Core Stabilization Chapter 4 Dysfunction and Responses to Non-optimal Core Stabilization Strategies Chapter 5 Integrating the Pilates Principles"--
