After a total hip replacement my surgeon told me - NO YOGA. After watching several of these videos I'm interested in Pilates. Anyone doing this who has had a hip replacement?
Going to try this.
I like Pilates!
Have to try this
PilatesAnytime.com is an excellent resource with hundreds of online classes from well-qualified teachers.

If we're completely correct, pronouncing his name the German way, it's nowhere near puh-lah-teez, but pi (as in picture) - lah - tes (as in test).
Pilates has given me much more core strength than I thought possible, because I have always had a week core in the past.
The title confused me. I thought we should pass on taking pilates. The article was pro pilates but I thought the title was going to be anti pilates.
I love Pilates; I had read part of an autobiography about Joseph Pilates. He was a prisoner of war being held by the Germans and used his own body and equipment made from the bed/furniture he had access to (the basis of the reformer).
He refused to help Hitler when asked to train the Germans.
Pilates is a fantastic form of exercise. I teach all forms of fitness and Pilates is by far the favorite among my exercise classes.
We relax, stretch and strengthen to soft classical music and candles instead of bright lights. It is such a great way to have the mind-body experience while working on fitness.
If you love pilates like I do, check out out my blogs -- pilates has changed my life!
Je t'adore Piilates!!
I love Pilates! I started doing a Pilates program about 3 years ago when my asthma got worse. Now I do Pilates with an addition with walking. I feel more coordinated and have better posture.
I love Pilates!!
