Does Pilates Make You Taller?
Three hours of Pilates at a local studio is now her weekly routine, which also includes two hours of gym-training and another hour of running or time on the cross-trainer. She also follows a strict dairy and gluten-free vegan diet.
Rosanna is not the only person who says that they have “grown” due to Pilates. Jennifer Aniston has said Pilates “makes me feel taller”, while singer Belinda Carlisle claims to have grown over two inches after practising it for eight years.
There are a lot of claims made about the benefits of Pilates; some true and other not so. Of course “getting taller” is something that a lot of people associate with Pilates. The reality is that Pilates certainly makes people feel taller, and it can also add some physical “height” as the posture improves and people stand up more.
I totally agree with Rosanna’s varied workout that includes cardio as well as Pilates, and I also agree that Pilates helps many people cope with stress. It is for this reason that my system PilatesEVO introduces mindfulness meditation to the practise. Rosanna also reported that Pilates has helped her confidence which is a vital point for many people. Whether the effects of regular exercise are physical, mental or simply psychosomatic is to some degree irrelevant as long as benefits are percieved. The PilatesEVO educations also teach about NLP which is a great way for people to improve their communication skills with themselves and with other people, all of which helps with self worth. When they study PilatesEVO, teachers learn how to use the techniques to make themselves more effective, and also how to pass on these skills to their clients which will make their teaching more effective.
So does Pilates make you taller? Celebrity comments about Pilates in my opinion do not always help the credibility of Pilates, but as I have said before, no news is bad news? Now where is my hairbrush and mirror…. “Lady in Red, is dancing with me……”
