As an anatomy nerd, I would love this!
This picture is unfortunate because the author is talking about kyphosis and lordosis not scoliosis, but the article is good info.
tomwaldronmovementtherapy.co.uk The lordotic and kyphotic curvatures of the human spine has been an area of debate for decades. The ideal global and segmental degree of curvature at the spine is a primary focus in many therapeutic and movement modalities, especially the modalities that focus on posture.

Pilates is wonderful for people with Parkinson’s and MS, as long as you are working one-on-one with a comprehensively trained teacher with continuing education that specializes in these conditions. Please reach out if you or someone you know would like to try a Pilates Private. 623-249-0441
Today @mariskabreland is showing us a great exercise to introduce and improve the movement of your shoulder blades. At the Neuro Studio we talk a lot about scapular (shoulder blade) stability and the ability to move your spine and arms, BUT remember you can’t stabilize something that is locked. So add in some movements for your blades and see how that changes all your movements of the upper body and your walking!!
🧠 Please note that moving those blades ain’t easy so start small and think it should be a “casual” glide not a forced movement. 🧠
If you have MS, like Mariska, it is easy to lose focus on your upper body and only focus on the legs and feet, but upper body weakness can also directly effect your gait cycle. If you need some help finding connection to your shoulders and the rest of your upper body, join The Neuro Studio’s Online Studio and enjoy a FREE 14 day trial (link in bio): https://online.theneurostudio.com/
We have an entire section dedicated to your upper body:
➡️ Just click on “Library” at the top of the page
➡️ Click on “Workouts” or “”See All” in the right corner
➡️ Find the “Quick Fixes: Upper Body” section and have fun!!

I love this quote!
An architect designs a home building on a strong foundation, using quality materials that will hold up over time, making his design pleasing to the eye while maintaining a stable structure behind what the eye can see.
A strong foundation can be the relationships that keep you grounded (ie. friends, family, faith). Your materials are the food you eat, taking care of your health & wellness, and fitness such as Pilates.
The structure and design are your mind, body & spirit. Your body will show the difference (no matter it’s size or shape), and more importantly, you will feel the difference, and hopefully live a long, healthy and happy life.
[11/13/19] I’m thankful for all my clients and the wonderful friends I’ve made teaching Pilates. What are you thankful for?
Hi Pilates lovers! 😍😍😍
I haven’t used this page since I had my own studio in Verrado. Now that I’m working at several studios in the Valley, I’m relaunching Mindful Core Pilates as a forum to let everyone know where I will be, growing my online presence as an independent contractor, and sharing fun and educational Pilates articles and posts.
If you are in Arcadia you can find me 5 days a week at Studio Verve Pilates on 32nd & Indian School Road.
I’m at Bird Dog Pilates on Tues and Thurs afternoons/evenings downtown on Central and Portland, just north of Roosevelt (with free parking).
I also have availability at a beautiful studio space in North Scottsdale that I rent from the amazing Physical Therapist, Leah Darling.
To schedule a session call or text me at (623) 249-0441 or email me at [email protected].
Please share! Pilates is for everyone!

Biomechanically the pelvis and shoulder are linked. This is what is referred to as a Myofascial sling.
The hamstrings starting from the tibia then insert into the Ischial tuberosity. This then continues along as the Sacro-tuberous ligament and then through the thoraco-Lumbar fascia. This then continues to the Latissimus dorsi which then inserts into the opposite scapula and humerus.
Therefore your Hamstrings actually attach to your arms!!!
So....if there is tension through this sling caused from a rotated pelvis, then the infraspinatus (a muscle on the scapula) can go into spasm and so prevents the biomechanical function of the shoulder. This is a common cause of shoulder injuries.
In order to reduce risk of shoulder injuries the pelvis must be in good biomechanical shape.
Therefore if you have shoulder pain, then you will need to have your pelvis assessed.
I'm really not going crazy if I assess your pelvis before looking at your shoulder!
