At the Hotel Certosa di Maggiano in Siena, we offer a Pilates back program aimed to help you to recover or prevent back pain. The Pilates back program we offer, it is a series of mat Pilates exercises in lying, sitting or standing positions. Intentionally focused on back problems, the techniques used are designed to strengthen the abdominal and spinal muscles to help prevent back pain. For those who already suffer from spinal pain, the program can help to improve posture and movement to prevent its recurrence. Pilates is a system that blends stretching, strengthening and core abdominal work into some very challenging exercises. Pilates is a total body conditioning system that integrates the mind and body to improve precision in muscle control, strength and flexibility. Pilates achieves quality of movement and function by creating body awareness, coordination and endurance.
