What Do Pilates and Sleep Have in Common?
The answer is quiet a bit. Getting more ZZZs might be as simple as coming to our classes. We all know how terrible we feel trying to make it through the day after a restless night’s sleep. What if a simple routine of doing some exercise a couple of times per week could help? A preliminary study in the Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies (2013; 17, 5-10) reported that healthy, inactive adults who participated in 2 - one hour Pilates mat classes a week for 12 weeks reported better sleep and quality of life. The participants reported better depth as well as quality of sleep. So get yourself into a few Pilates classes and see what a difference it can make for you.
