What is MELTed Pilates?
The MELT Method is about returning the body back to its ideal state, especially in conjunction with exercise. Unfortunately, most people don’t know they have misalignments or dysfunctions in their body when they exercise. If your body is not prepared for exercise, you can easily end up injured! At a minimum, you create tension and stress if you exercise and your body is not in proper alignment or has inhibited extensibility.
The simple fact is, you may not gain the full benefit of Pilates mat exercises if your body isn’t in proper alignment, regardless ofthe benefits of the method. Romana Kryzanowska used to say “Bad Pilates is better than no Pilates.” But we can’t be complacent about bad Pilates, especially in a group setting!
MELTed Pilates improves alignment and allows for increased stability and improved mobility – the cornerstones of the Pilates method.
When you add MELT to your Pilates session or class, you experience an immediate change in alignment and awareness. In other words, you get to sense how your body feels when it’s in a more ideal state. You also tap into your neurocore, which regulates your body’s reflexive and rooting mechanisms. When your core is working efficiently and your connective tissue is hydrated properly, performance and execution improves. You will notice a deeper connection in your body and to your Pilates practice.
