Pilates Carnival was created by Chris Hunt to raise money for charity and give access to training to more Pilates teachers who may not be able to afford the usual cost. There are Pilates Carnival conventions all over the world where all profits go to a local children’s charity. No presenters or organisers make any money, and the cost for attending a weekend event with a full schedule of classes from international presenters is typically around 50€. If you want to apply for a sponsored education, then please email us at pilatesEVOschool@pilatesevo.com. You will need to provide a covering presentation as to why you should be considered for sponsorship. All applications are looked at by Chris.

Pilates not painkillers best cure for back pain

Pilates not painkillers best cure for back pain

www.pilatesevo.com

It always pleases me to see Pilates making the front pages of the newspapers. So this morning when my copy of The Times was delivered I was very happy to see the headline ”Pilates not painkillers best cure for backache”.

The article began by saying that taking drugs for back pain is largely pointless, following an overview of research.

The study was led by Manuela Ferriera of the George Institute in Sydney. Her team analysed 35 trials involving 6,000 patients using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for back pain and sciatica. Only one in six patients treated with the drugs received any pain relief that they would not have got from a placebo. But that relief was so small that it made no difference to their lives. However, the drugs almost doubled the risk of problems such as bleeding and stomach ulcers.

Dr Ferreira stated that “back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide and is commonly managed by prescribing anti-inflammatory drugs. Our results show that these drugs only provide very limited short-term pain relief. They do reduce the level of pain but only very slightly and arguable not of any clinical significance. When you factor in the side-effects which are common, it becomes clear that these drugs are not the answer to providing pain relief to the many millions who suffer from this debilitating condition every year.”

Pilates not painkillers best cure for backache
Gustavo Machado, another of the researchers said “Patients with back pain should consider an exercise program to help them manage their condition. For example aerobic exercises, strengthening/stretching exercises, Pilates and core-stability exercises.”

Of course, all us Pilates people are reading this having known the truth for many years having dealt with thousands of clients. But it’s always nice to see it reported in the mainstream press, especially the quality press.

I have written before about similar topics before, and I think it’s important to stress again that the best remedy for a back condition and many other issues is not, as the report says, only one thing. Even doing Pilates alone, whilst it will without doubt improve the condition, is not the best way to get the maximum results for your clients. We must deal with any problem in a holistic way. I agree with the article that this must include Pilates/core-stability exercises and also cardio, but I would add another vital element; mental health. It is totally proven that pain is as much psychological as it is physical, if not more so. So my advice is to treat back pain with appropriate and varied exercise. But also use techniques such as meditation. This is the total wellness I refer to in my PilatesEVO training courses. It is why in PilatesEVO I teach about meditation as well as NLP, meridians and functional movements.

I’d love to chat with other teachers so if you have any comments then please drop me a line by clicking on www.pilatesevo.com or email me at chris@pilatesevo.com.

What Is PilatesEVO

What is PilatesEVO?
Since its birth, the Pilates method has been modified and arguably made more effective by some distinguished presenters, but diluted and the basic principles largely ignored by less scrupulous teachers. Also, there are so many commercially orientated systems on the market today that tell teachers exactly what to do and when to do it, because they do not trust them to think for themselves. Welcome to a breath of fresh air; welcome to the world of PilatesEVO©.

So what is PilatesEVO©? Firstly, EVO is an abbreviation of evolution. It is like no other Pilates system. Developed by Chris Hunt in London and the PilatesEVO© School in Barcelona, it takes Pilates in a new, deeper and exciting direction by:

  • Incorporating more functional training methods and movement patterns
  • Using NLP techniques to engage clients and improve teaching methods
  • Using kundalini movements for flow
  • Incorporating meridian lines
  • Expanding the mind and body connection using mindfulness meditation to maximise the psychological and physical benefits, improving concentration and making clients emotionally, mentally and spiritually fitter
  • Using sequences of movements made up from sacred numbers
  • Using a unique soundtrack mixed in London

Despite these enhancements, PilatesEVO© still stays true to traditional Pilates principles (it is worth remembering that the accepted Principles of Pilates were not created by Joseph Pilates, but were introduced long after his death).

PilatesEVO© is a complete system in itself, but crucially all the ideas it teaches can also be used to enhance the teaching of any other Pilates method and any other Pilates class. The training includes how to deliver a Pilates class by using NLP nethods to make better teachers who understand their clients more. Connecting with clients on the right levels and in the right ways not only helps to retain them, but it will also ensure that their progress far exceeds training where there is no such connection.

PilatesEVO© is the only system in the world that allows its teachers to create their own exercise combinations, that if approved by Chris Hunt can then be introduced to the system worldwide. That is a massive change when compared to all other systems which basically tell the teachers exactly what to do and say. PilatesEVO© does not just tell its teachers what to do and when to do it as if they were robots; it actively encourages them to bring their own personality and ideas to the system and to thus create their own Universe. What other systems allows such freedom? What other systems have such trust in their teachers?

Pilates EVO© is a system that will remain challenging to a wide range of training goals from elite athletes, people seeking everyday fitness, to clients rehabilitating following accident or injury. The mind and body are inextricably linked; we cannot progress one without the other. PilatesEVO© is more than an exercise system, it is a way of life, a way to maximise potential physically, mentally and emotionally.

I talk a lot about being Buddhist and about giving. In these times of austerity, maybe we do not have as much money to give away, but no matter what our financial situation, we can always give away our time and our expertise. And I have absolutely no doubt that the more we give, the more we receive.

So, as I am someone who practises what I preach, I will be giving away a free Pilates session with me every week. You can have the session in person if you are in Barcelona, we can arrange to meet if I will be travelling to your country soon, or you can have the session online.

All you have to do is follow me on twitter www.twitter.com/thechrishunt and tweet “I want Chris Hunt Pilates” with the hashtags #chp, #pilates and #Barcelona. Simple.  You can enter each week as many times as you want to and I will announce the winner every Friday. So good luck, and I hope to see you soon for a private Pilates session!
