Inspiration of the Month
When did you start Pilates and what inspired you to start? When my youngest son started college last year I decided it was finally time to focus on myself and me and some friends started looking for an exercise class of some sort. Although I had been working out regularly on my elliptical, I wanted something for flexibility and strength. I started Yoga at Rivercity Pilates last September and I hesitantly transitioned to Pilates in November. I wasn’t sure what Pilates was and thought it would be too hard for me. My friend Theresa talked me into it and I agreed to try it for one month. I have now been doing Pilates for almost a year.
How often do you practice Pilates and what type of sessions or classes have you been doing? I mostly take mat classes, but enjoy taking Barre classes, as well. I try to do Pilates three times a week but due to work schedule and life commitments I can’t always make it to the studio so I do Pilates at home on the days I can’t make it, using techniques I learned at the studio.
