About Tone Pilates & Music
Your body's physical stance is also your Tone. Tone represents the perceived frequency of a musical Note or sound. If you consider a musical Note as a physiological stance, then one could compare the body's movements to music. Pilates requires that you treat your body with respect, love, and reassurance... and in return, your body will respond with combined mental health, physical strength and confidence. Consider balance as a spiritual journey to achieving your complete well being.
I think of my unique practice in that very sense. As you take note of your body's elements, each movement is a "pitch" - accurate and precise. When you practice Pilates, your body becomes "whole", harmonious and toned.
Subconsciously your entire neuromuscular system begins to work as you train your brain to send precise signals to your muscles. With enough repetitions (3 times per week) you will be amazed at the transformation your body can undergo in just 30 days.
Finally, as in a musical Tone, with Pilates your body will look more distinguished as you build confidence, stand taller and in perfect alignment. Tone is what makes the note sound darker or brighter, heavier or lighter. In the same way, Pilates can enhance the sensation associated with a gently moving body, complete with grace and harmony, regardless of age or gender.
