Independence Through Pilates…

July 5, 2012 at 11:05 pm 11 comments

Independence: Mr. Pilates at 57 and 82 (or is it 60 and 85?)

Today is Independence Day in The United States of America.  Happy Birthday, America!  Thank you, Brave Peoples, who travelled many scary miles to leave lands that were oppressive to start out a-new.  I certainly do not honor some forms of their making a new home for themselves…by killing off those who already lived here. I will make a strong statement on that…but here we are in the now and I am glad to live in a country where I can do as I wish as long as I am within the laws that I have agreed to and as long as I do not hurt others for my own well-being.  (Alas, many interpret this in many different ways.)

When I consider Independence and how that relates to our daily work in Pilates…I think of many things.  One, I wrote about July 4, 2010 in the Independence:  It’s Fundamental to Pilates found here:  https://theverticalworkshop.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/independence-its-fundamental-to-pilates/.  That article is all about how we must curate a sense of independence in our clients’ abilities within the Pilates studio…within the sessions.  Today, I’m thinking of the Independence that Pilates allows me in my body.  Of course, I think of this often, but more so each day as I have new clients who are gaining physical independence in their bodies for the first time in a long time…and as I watch my beloved grandfather struggle, right now, through some tremendously difficult physical times I recognize now more than ever how I have focused so much of my own life on this because I don’t want to be physically dependent on anyone or anything now…or in the future.

My own experience:  I recall my paternal grandparents.  They seemed so old even when they were young.  I remember thinking that 65 was really old.  Of course, now I think of 65 as quite young!  I see how strong and able we all can be, barring tragic accidents and disease, if we eat, sleep and exercise well and keep of healthy mind.  My father’s parents were very sedentary.  His mother, my Grandma Betty, smoked, struggled with high cholesterol, survived multiple cancers then walked with a crutch and later a walker and battled many physical ailments and diseases.  My memory of her, was a woman who was always ailing, debilitated and going to doctors or talking about doctors.  Though I loved her very much, and still do, I recall thinking quite strongly from a very young age:  I don’t want to suffer like she does!  I don’t want my life to be about sitting and going to doctors and talking about doctors.  It was the similar with my father’s father, my Grandpa Jules (Julie).  A wonderful man, but he didn’t do anything physically and for all I knew couldn’t.  Also a smoker who later had tremendous senility…I loved him so very much, but I recall not wanting to be like him, either.

Then there was my mother’s father…my Grandpa Paul…who is still with us today having just celebrated his 90th birthday.  Until just the past couple of years, he was relatively physically vital.  A series of mini-strokes and then a recent fall that has been truly life-changing have taken his physical independence away.  He was always my image of strength and vitality.  While my father’s parents suffered physically, my Grandpa Paul, was young-seeming and lithe.  Tanned with a sparkly white smile and glint in his eye, he had muscles that were the envy of nearly all and could hop over the banister of his yacht (yes…he had a stunning boat).  He didn’t do any focused exercise except maintain his boat, paint large paintings, create other art and swim and, in truth, he was never a healthy eater (Twinkies and Gatorade are a favorite meal…not kidding!) and he certainly was a stylish smoker for a long time…but… he moved…a lot…and that kept him very healthy as long as possible.  Until recently, he could do as he wanted.  He had such physical Independence.

Now, after those strokes and a recent fall/head injury, Grandpa Paul can hardly sit himself upright.  He has 24-hour help.  Assisted, he can “walk” with a walker.  Mostly, he is moved around in a wheelchair by his kind helper.  He’s never been one to want to go out and about int he world, though he was a world traveller…but now he cannot.  Whether he wants to or not…he cannot.  He has no choice any longer.  Today, he can hold a fork and feed himself, but he also has a feeding tube.  For a couple of months, he couldn’t lift his hand to his face or lift his hands at all.  He was stuck inside of his body…couldn’t even speak.  Thank goodness, he can speak and do a little for himself, now, but he will not shower, shave, dress himself, go see a movie or lift a paint brush again.  Other people have to do all of these things for him.  He has zero Independence.

It brings me back to what I’ve thought of so many times before…nearly my entire life:  Physical Independence is KEY!

That’s a long intro into how this relates to Pilates…but you surely see it already:  This is why we do Pilates.  This is why I do Pilates.  And while many of our clients don’t know it when they begin…this is the great benefit they receive from Pilates!  Physical Independence!

When you can do whatever you ask your body to do…by choice…by free will and ability…it’s wonderful!  When you cannot do as you wish…it’s limiting and diminishing.  Take your new clients:  They work very hard…you train them truly…and within a handful of sessions they say something stunningly wonderful like “I haven’t felt like this in years!” or “I’m doing things out of the studio that I haven’t done in 20 years!”  Or some such sensational thing.  Replete with true happiness, they share this…they are regaining their independence…and it’s exhilarating!

What we give our clients is Independence!  They walk taller and for longer.  They don’t hurt or tire as much in their backs, legs and feet.  They have learned to integrate their limbs and torso in a way that they are stronger.  They can lift heavy things, hold their children, move boxes.  They are hiking The Matterhorn in their 80’s, recovering quickly from having a baby, they are playing more golf, sitting without pain, swinging from trapezes…fulfilling life-long dreams…because they physically can!  This is Independence!

I started dancing at the ripe old age of 3 1/2.  I danced through one ache and pain and injury after the other, whether it was sore feet, tendonitis in my knees, broken ribs, torn hamstrings…you name it.  Terrible!  I have a lot of scar tissue…just like you do.  I have a lot of imbalances…just like you.  With that…at 40 1/2…37 years later…I try not to think where I’d be without Pilates.  I’m confident it keeps me standing, walking and skipping around town and the world!  It helps me be Independent!

Let’s remember that this is what we give our clients:  Independence!

Enjoy!

Flow & Rhythm – 2 hrs

Flow is much more than moving quickly through a list of exercises. Let’s figure out what flow is and how to create it within each move, reception and exercise. Flow has a lot to do with how you think of the workout and how you use your voice to set rhythms, give accents and emphasize certain points of each exercise. It will change your teaching for the better.

We’ll work to understand the biomechanics and functional anatomy surrounding the pelvis, spine, shoulder girdle and how to apply this information to your teaching.

    I would love to hear your thoughts about clicking hips & shoulders, so many of my older clients experience this.

      Lori Bee,
      Thank you for reading this blog…and writing to me!
      It will be my pleasure to tell you about clicking hips and shoulders.
      I will write back in the next few days, but if you don’t get a response from me before Monday…please write to me again. I’m in a bit of a time-bind these days and I don’t want to neglect you and am very open to reminders!

      With that, I’ll soon be doing a webinar of sorts of my Mysterious Aches and Pains workshop…that is always different. Clicking joints is always a big topic. It will be a monthly or so event. Keep your eyes out for it!

      More soon!
      Thank you!

    Hi Shari,

    I was just talking with my client about why I love Pilates so much. The words I used were freedom and control and now independence. I like it! I have no idea where I’d be without pilates as well. What an amazing discipline it is!

    I am also interested in hearing about clicking hips. The phrase that comes to mind is stability then mobility. I’m sure you have something insightful and useful to offer. Thanks again for your lovely blog!

    Rachel

      Rachel, it’s great to hear from you!

      Indeed, the work our clients do gives them freedom, control and independence! Wonderful!

      I will surely share my thoughts about clicking hips. It does all center around stabilizing the pelvis and mobilizing the femur…but the balance of what and when and how is pretty particular…though not surprising. I will seek to post an article about it soon!

      With that…as I mentioned in my other response…I am going to launch a monthly (or so) webinar to discuss these many and varied “Mysterious Aches and Pains” as I call them. It will be available to everyone around the world who wants to join in. It will be fun and informative. A mini-workshop right at your desktop…or in your hand! I will keep you and everyone posted when I can gather the technological components to make it effective! If you have any information that can help me…send it my way, please!

      All the best! – Shari
