With Pilates there are movements that some might have difficulty doing. whether it be weight , arthritis issue or something else. The same can be said for yoga.
So if one wants to try Pilates, do what your body can do. You don't have to adapt every move in the beginning or ever for that matter.
When I first started weighing in at over 300 lbs, some of the moves were impossible. As I lost weight, got more flexible and my confidence built, I could do more. There will always be people better than I am, but that doesn't stop me from doing a Pilates workout every day. I try to get in 30 minutes a day.
Some days working just certain part of the body.
I enjoy doing Pilates better than Yoga. But somedays I will incorporate both into my workout.
I'm a flexible strong 71 year old who hope to be the same at 81 and 91.
