Movement is essential to brain health. Our motor cortex lives right next to our frontal lobe. Areas of the brain that are next to each other affect one another. When we move we send fuel and activation to both the motor cotex and frontal love. That means that regular, intentional and novel movement not only helps us feel good with endorphens, but it also improves cognition, creativity and inhibition of our old brain responses like emotional reactivity and threat response.
Moving in novel, complex, non-linear ways also increases the health of our cerebellum, which is responsible for our accuracy, balance and coordination of movement and our brianstem which controls our posture and affects our autonomic systems.
Each BB Pilates class is build on sequencing that intentionally trains the nervous system to perform better, to process stress and emotions through the body and to teach how to modify and adjust exercises and neurodrills for your unique body and system.
