The Global/Local Dynamic of Functional Movement

img_reactive_people 100x107.jpg 
Functional Movements are defined as movements based on real world situational biomechanics. These involve movements in multiple planes and using multiple joints including the actions of sitting and standing, bending and lifting, pushing and pulling, twisting and climbing: all of the actions that our body performs everyday to accomplish the tasks of daily life.

Pilates ‎incorporates a combination of exercises that recruit local (deep) stabilizing muscles, while also integrating the global (superficial) mover muscles. When both systems are working well together, Functional Movement becomes fluid and effortless, making the activities of life easier for all ages, as well as improving overall performance in active pursuits.  

Understanding the biomechanical synergy of these local and global systems that naturally occurs when we have effective stability and movement is imperative in ‎teaching a body to move freely with control and precision.
