Pilates gives your balance back

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

There are only few techniques what golfers use all around the World to balance their bodies. Most commonly known are Pilates and Yoga. Both of them have been practiced in Estonia for a while also. But surely there are some differences in between pilates coaches of which I would like talk about today.  As we know, we can recognize two branches of Pilates in these days: Classic or authentic pilates and the modern one. As both of them have legal rights to operate it is entirely up to the person which one to choose.  Although classic or True Pilates follows precisely Joseph Pilates Method what he worked out for himself to recover his body from rickets. He also used his tecnique to train sportsman and ballett dancers in New York later on his life. So, here we have a man who actually founded pilates. The modern pilates seems to be more like a short reflection of it …

Here in Estonia we have the Master of True Pilates - mrs Britt Kalbus, who follows the teaching of a grand master Joseph Pilates. She has done her training in various places, but most importantly with  Romana Kryzanowska , who has heritaged Joseph`s & his wife Clara`s studio in New York after they passed away… Romana became a very successful student of Joseph Pilates while she had to recover from her injury as ballerina.

We are also lucky to have here with us True Pilates Master Peter Napoliello from NYC, who is practicing here in Tallinn with Britt Kalbus. Peter is a “black belt in pilates” – if you like :)

So, I went to see Britt & Peter last week and what I saw was impressive indeed …

Mari Suursalu, the best lady golfer in Estonia tells after her session: “I had taken regular Pilates classes over the past six months but True Pilates is truly different. With the help and instruction of Peter I quickly realised what mucles actually need to work in order to get the effect. True Pilates is especially good for golfers since it focuses on the core and lower body. Good posture is vital in terms of a consistant golfswing and with the help of Pilates ahcieving that is probably the easiest and quickest way.
I am aware of the imbalance in my body , with the right side being a lot stronger, its is pretty common amongs tennis players and golfers and Pilates helps to even that out also.
I definitely recommend True Pilates to all golfers and other athletes.”
