Wedding Dress Workout: Better Posture

Hey there beauty! In today’s post I am talking about bridal posture, and more importantly, how to get better posture with Pilates based exercises.

Consider this:

You’ve dropped a bucket-load of money on the dress (a worthy investment for sure).

You’ve spent time finding the perfect song for walking down the aisle.

You’ve visualized looking up and seeing your future husband standing there, tears in his eyes with how beautiful you are.

But why not add the extra special icing on the cake? This is your entrance, your time to shine. Beautiful posture will make you look even more calm, confident and completely elegant.

And it’s easy to attain — if you start now.

Why Pilates For Better Posture?

The best way to improve your posture is to focus on exercises that strengthen your core — the abdominal and low back muscles that connect to your spine and pelvis — and the best form of exercise for doing that is Pilates.

All Pilates work starts with core engagement; whether you’re stabilizing or mobilizing your spine, or moving your limbs, it has to come from the center of the body.

If you’d like to know a little more about the technical side of posture and alignment, and the simple tweaks you can make everyday to get better posture, check out my article for Cassandra & Co Weddings.

Why You Want This

Strengthening the core, and improving flexibility in your spine, will allow you to stand taller, move more gracefully and make you feel as though you are floating down the aisle.

Plus, did you know that bad posture can affect your digestive system?! Yep, Pilates can help you to beat the bridal bloat!

Why You Need This

Better posture aside, having core strength keeps you safe during other forms of exercise and releases pressure from your back, hips and knees.
