Age certainly does not preclude you from beginning Pilates! Here is why I can answer this question so emphatically.
- Pilates movements are performed on equipment. The equipment provides support and alignment for your body.
- The exercises are endlessly customize-able allowing the instructor to make the work more or less difficult depending on your ability.
- If you have some pre-existing injury or weakness, the exercises chosen for you can work around the injury or target the weakness.
- If you are concerned that your balance is not as strong as it had been, Pilates can help. Over time you can regain balance and prevent falling.
