Joseph Pilates Quote of the Week:

"The art of contrology proves that the only real guide to your true age lies not in years or how you THINK you feel but as you ACTUALLY are as infallibly indicated by the degree of natural and normal flexibility enjoyed by your spine throughout life." ~Return to Life Through Contrology

Pilates on Huffington Post

My husband is a Huffington Post addict and every once in a while I will get sucked into the endless abyss of useful and not so useful information. There are some pretty interesting articles about Pilates on there, and this one, I thought was handy for those on the fence about whether or not to jump into Pilates. The journalists write of the benefits of a single session, and the downside of the cost of getting into a routine of apparatus classes. But the mat classes, they determine, are financially doable. So take a look, and then jump on in to a Pilates class if it strikes your fancy! "We Tried It: Reformer Pilates"

I am so inspired and excited this week! I am not taking the credit for this because my client did all the work, but this particular client (and you know who you are) has been taking duet and group classes with me for almost a year and a half. She reported to me that she is over an inch taller than she was a year ago! Where the cervical and thoracic spinal areas meet has straightened (which a doctor told her could never change) and she looks fabulous! She walks with better posture and has so much more body awareness than when she began this Pilates journey. Thank you Joseph Pilates! And to all my clients who would like to run with this and grow to be 6 feet tall, well, I guess everyone is allowed her own dreams. I'm off to having sweet dreams myself now. Ciao!
