Four months ago, in quite a lot of pain, I joined Pilates. What a wake-up call to my body! I had never done anything so intensely focused on getting my body to work as it is meant to. After the first few classes I would feel like a zombie as my body adapted to the work outs. After a few more I found myself breathing properly for the first time in my life – as if my lungs had finally kicked in to action.
I now go twice weekly and just love it – I am ashamedly addicted to Pilates and am so much more aware of my body and posture. I feel stronger and more flexible than I have been in year and even my low blood pressure seems to have normalised somehow plus the toning I had long given up on has started to happen! My Osteopath, who I visit less often these days … says it is like my body is fully connected for the first time in the 10 years she has been treating me! The only question is… why did I take so long to find Pilates!
