I teach 11 group Pilates classes and 6 one to one Pilates sessions a week however I wasn’t practicing what I preached, I wasn’t doing Pilates for myself. I know better than this so I have committed to doing a Pilates session for myself every single day and to remain accountable I have videoed each session and posted it on our instagram stories, feel free to check them out. After the first 4 days I was aching everywhere but now we are on day 9 and I’ve made it a habit I am experiencing much less muscle soreness. Ive always loved Pilates and making the time to do it for myself has made me fall in love with it all over again.
I love the clever things about Pilates, how the little adjustments make all the difference, how each move starts off relatively easy and after 3 reps you can really feel it, I love the insight it gives me to my body’s weaknesses and strengths educating me on the areas I need to work on. I also love that Pilates is for everyone, not just me as a runner or as a teacher but literally everybody. From beginners to advanced there is a level of Pilates for all participants and with a knowledgeable teacher (thats me!) everyone can take part and benefit from Pilates.
