Mariela Carter a certified Pilates instructor announced the launch of her new fitness and wellness oriented website: http://www.vitalinnovativepilates.com. This recently renovated site features Pilates exercises, videos, health and nutrition tips. In addition she also presents her new book of stretches " Can you touch your toes?". This book outlines the most important stretches that you should learn and practice the right way everyday." Have you tried touching your toes lately?" asks Mariela. "If you assess your flexibility on a daily basis by trying to touch your toes, you will feel what parts of your body are tighter and less mobile."
"My goal with this website is to be able to reach more people and to provide helpful information about the amazing results that you can experience by practicing Pilates and following my stretching routines regardless of your fitness level." New and current clients can learn how to perform the different routines either on the mat or on the apparatus. Also new to this website is a blog, which is updated frequently with articles, news and tips.
"The simple practice of stretching correctly everyday will help you improve your mobility, strength, circulation and overall sense of wellbeing. Sitting at your desk for long hours everyday can shorten some muscles triggering neck and back pain," says Mariela. Her book "Can you touch your toes?" offers the readers six different stretching routines. For example, if you are short on time you can find five, ten and fifteen minute routines. It even includes a ten-minute routine for the office and desk. The stretching routines end with a cool down period. Through deep breathing and focusing on how relaxed and tension free your body feels after stretching, you will enjoy a great relaxation and meditation break.
Countless studies from renowned clinics and universities all over the country and around the world have proven how beneficial stretching can be for your mind and body. Doctors and physical therapists agree that people with less stiffness in their bodies have better circulation and blood flow to their internal organs. Therefore, less risk for stroke, diabetes and heart attack. They have all concluded that stretching is a vital discipline as important as cardiovascular conditioning and strength training.
Mariela Carter has been a physical therapist for over thirty years and a certified Pilates instructor since 2003. She has developed a different and innovative practice by incorporating into her Pilates training her knowledge of the human body. People suffering from neck and back pain, poor posture, loss of flexibility related to the aging process and sports related injuries have experienced the benefits of safely training with Mariela. She is a member of the Pilates Method Alliance and the Breast Cancer Coalition.
