Private Pilates Sessions with Ernie Adams

*User Friendly Pilates Sessions:

User Friendly Pilates can help you increase core strength and spinal flexibility with the proper awareness and mental focus to get stronger without getting hurt. Private sessions are tailored to your specific needs and level of ability. The goal is not only about increasing core strength, it is also about learning to move more gracefully, reduce pain, balance better, walk easier and live a more active life. For more detailed information, please visit the User Friendly Pilates page.

*Walking & Balance’ Consultations:

Walking is rhythm and flow in action and one of the best things you can do for your health. Good equilibrium, posture, flexibility and strength are required to stay balanced and prevent falls. During private Walking & Balance Consultations I will assess your balance and walking issues and give you specific exercises to practice at home, and also ways to practice as you walk around during the day.   

*Injury Recovery/Pilates Before & After Surgery:

Injury recovery is about preventing injury compensation patterns; such as limping, stiffness, or awkward movement, from becoming permanent disabilities. Pilates before hip, knee or back surgery, is about being in the best condition possible before surgery to insure a better outcome. Post Surgery Pilates Sessions can help you heal more completely, recovery lost ability, and get you back into your life faster.

*NOTE: Short videos of exercises can be provided during a session at no extra cost. This helps many clients remember exercises and keeps them on track.
