Impaired balance and limited mobility can significantly impact their overall physical well-being and functional independence. Therefore, it becomes crucial to explore effective interventions that can address these specific needs and promote improve balance and mobility in this population. Pilates, a mind-body exercise approach, has gained recognition for its potential benefits in enhancing balance, flexibility, and core strength in various populations.
