My "Arthritis" is actually Torn Meniscus on one knee ...

Monday, July 09, 2012

My pilates teacher thinks so. And over at the pilates studio, they have a background in physical therapy, not aerobics and fitness. So they've seen these things before. Unlike at a yoga studio - wherein I will not name names and where they conducted classes as if in a cult - they asked about injuries before conducting class. In fact, they had an intake form - preexisting conditions, as if they were running a physical therapy clinic. I did my second-ever social buying stint to get a class card for mat classes at that pilates studio at a real discount.

But, time and money permitting, I will be a customer. They are really concerned ...

Now I am on this site for pilates info, but I don't incorporate it -- I do my own pilates as encapsulated in my yoga fusion routine ...

I can safely say that, what *I* do on my own, is not classical pilates; I conduct my torso in a more STOTT or other revisionist manner with a slight pelvic tilt ... and I incorporate more of an influence of killer calisthenics I picked up at an exercise studio in Miami Beach, back in the day ...

Let me say this: accidentally this studio seems to embody my "secret" of making pilates really effective --- inadequate air conditioning for the proper practice of that art. Southern exposure, greenhouse effect, and a 96 degree day in Greater New York ....

I cannot believe the apparatus they introduced us in the class to (well, to ME, the newbie, anyway) - the owner stated that the class is all one level--"Challenging" ... big foam roller the length of a tall torso, Thera-band and the Magic Circle ...

    It sounds like you may have found a place that works for you. I know you do most of your work on your own (hurrah for your self-discipline), but this studio would seem to be very supportive.

    Sounds like a really interesting class. Have you had your knee checked out? Hope it feels better soon.
