Thank you. I didn't really know what pilates was before. Report
I am almost 63 years old and started Pilattes in Toronto in their Stott studio after an ankle injury. First I had private insttuction from an incredible instructor trainer Lisa K. and 7 months ago I joined group classes -reformer level 1 and reformer for active aging. I go 2x's per week. I can't even describe to you how much Pilates has changed my ability to move through the world. My knees are less sore, my ankle is much better but most of all I am stronger more flexible and most importantly I have better balance. I can stand on my feet for hours. Sit comfortably on chairs without backs and I feel better about my chubby body as I move around. I am also more aware of my surroundings and am bumping into people and inanimate objects less than I used to. I can squat which is something I have not been able to do for years because of my knees and I notice that month by month I am more able to get in and out of seating and standing positions. I absolutely love this form of exercise!!!!! Anyone can do it. I work very hard on doing it properly and find that the level 1 classes are challenging. I am tired after a class but I feel great and am proud of myself. Paying in advance by class makes sure I never miss one (additional incentive to attend ha ha) I will continue to do Pilattes for the rest of my life! This is not something I can say about every other type of fitness I have been involved in. Give it a try no matter how young or old, or small or large or shy or outgoing you are-it really is for everyone. Report
