Posturing Through the Ages

By Robin Loving

“I won’t grow up,” said Peter Pan, and while we might want to agree with him, our bodies are experiencing inevitable changes that we can work to counteract through simple movements to keep us upright. Come to Rotary Tuesday, August 9, at 12:30pm to hear Certified Pilates Teacher Sue Lawrence speak on Posturing Though the Ages at Hotel Misión, Salida a Querétaro 1. The presentation will be free and open to the public.

“Posture matters,” says Lawrence, “as good posture looks great and improves circulation, respiration, and mobility.” Lawrence will present some common actions that are easy to remember that will increase physical and mental abilities daily. “The great challenge is not the exercise itself, but to make time for it, and to pattern our lives to include it in our weeks,” says Lawrence.

“Our bodies like variety,” says Lawrence, “and survival dictates the need for change. Pilates is a physical and mental exercise that can help us stay up even if we don’t feel like growing up,” she says. Joe Pilates developed a series of exercises and equipment for full body conditioning. “While I am a huge fan of Pilates, I will not say that any exercise is better than another but that you do what moves you,” she concluded. Pilates said, “We are as old as our spine is flexible.”

Lawrence will demonstrate several exercises for core, pelvis, feet, and spinal health using arms and legs. Some are as easy as breathing or rising from a theater seat and increase essential balance. The breathing exercise is derived from yoga, and can be used to calm us when we are stressed.

Lawrence’s previous Rotary presentation on osteoporosis was extremely well received. She currently teaches Pilates. Formerly, she was in the oil and gas commodities industry in New York.
