CoreFocused of Hollis, NH added a Gratz Pedi-pole to its Pilates apparatus offerings this month. The Pedi-pole was originally designed by Joseph Pilates for assisting an Opera singer to breathe more effectively. This apparatus is excellent for sensing and developing core lift, shoulder stability, balance and whole body awareness. In addition the pedi-pole exercises enhance elongation and stability. It is a valuable tool in repatterning shoulder & neck stability, enhancing movement & elongation. After working on the pedi-pole, one steps away with sense of lift and elongation and ease, a sure sign of improved posture.
