WOW — I’ve Discovered Pilates

I’ve been an exerciser for most of my life. I started with Yoga in high school. From there I went to swimming, running, aerobics with Jane Fonda, Callenetics, Yoga with Racquel Welch, Step, Body for Life, elliptical, treadmill, and Water Gym . . . I love exercise, and I’ve done a lot of different types. But nothing has ever changed my body the way Pilates is changing it.

On my first visit to the studio the instructor saw I had an unstable SI joint. My lower back has bothered me for a lot of years, and no one was ever able to figure out why.  One session on the Reformer and the pain was almost gone. I was impressed. I continue to be impressed with the sessions we’re doing on the Reformer and the Cadillac. I’m being stretched in ways I didn’t know I could stretch, I’m getting stronger and I’m standing taller.   I’m striding the Earth. Yowsa.
