Pilates. Why Not?
I talk about Pilates a lot. Most days, even when I am not teaching I find myself talking about it. I don’t have to, I want to. I like to. Sometimes I can’t help myself. Am I addicted? Perhaps. Although a bit weird to admit, I’ve woken myself up many a time stretching, doing the hundreds, a Pilates favorite :), or talking a client through an exercise. I’m not sure if it makes me fluent, but I love what I do. I can speak for the other eight instructors at Pura Vida that they do too.
Speaking Pilates is not just giving detailed instruction, or promoting certain exercises or conquering footwork. It’s a belief and focus on better posture, balance and overall being. So what is that really? It’s how you sit, stand, and feel on a daily basis. These are really the results that you “see”. Yes, you might lose inches and tone and get a flatter stomach, but truthfully it’s instilling movement and values and an understanding in what you do when you are outside of the studio.
If you think about how much time and money we invest in THINGS that make us happy, why wouldn’t you do the same in something that is proven to give you a better quality of life.
