How Has Pilates Affected Your Life?
The next few posts will be from some of our clients. We thought it would be interesting to share some of their stories. Please feel free to share your own comments. We would like to hear your story!
Pilates has become an integral part of my life. When I began, I was looking for a sustainable way to move my body over time – years – that would help me continually build strength and tone my body. I wanted to learn more about how my body was meant to move and I wanted the movement to be purposeful, and something that I could build on over time. I found that Pilates does all those things for me. I’ve learned so much about my capabilities, what my body can do, and the importance of connecting my mind and my breath to my movements. I can attribute so many changes – big and small – to doing Pilates consistently every week. The time I’ve spent on the mat and on the reformer have toned my body, improved my posture, and changed how I move all the time. I’m aware of what my body can do, where its limits are, and how I can strengthen its weaknesses. Deciding to learn to use my body to sustain itself is one of the most important decisions I’ve made about my health. The instructors at Symmetry Pilates Center have been wonderfully supportive; they share their knowledge and expertise at each session, and help you make improvements. I am so grateful to have found such a great studio to practice at each week. – Erin
