What is FLEXION-FREE Pilates and who needs to do it ?

What is Flexion Free Pilates?

Flex­ion-free Pilates pro­gram is based on exer­cis­es that specif­i­cal­ly chal­lenge the core, back, periph­ery – with­out twist­ing, round­ing (flex­ing) or extend­ing the spine while pro­vid­ing an effec­tive, safe, full-body workout.

Spinal flex­ion is a neces­si­ty in our every­day life. We per­form hun­dreds of for­ward flex­ion moves every day and our spine is built for that. But, for those with cer­tain con­di­tions, the flex­ing move­ment of the spine present in many of the tra­di­tion­al Pilates exer­cis­es is not appropriate.
