I do believe that enjoyment is the key to staying motivated and I hope that this is something my students take from our classes. Pilates combines all the elements I enjoyed about my fitness and yoga practice – strength and agility through effort and regular practice. The benefits of Pilates, when performed properly, are unsurpassed and I get the same buzz from watching my students’ progress as I do when I find something new in a familiar exercise.
This is intelligent movement. Pilates! Pilates! So good I did it twice. Firstly with Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA) and more recently with Body Arts and Science Institute (basi).
As well as my training in both mat and studio equipment, I take regular courses and workshops with other Pilates professionals and Master Teachers, so am committed to continuing professional development. You can even catch me online being taught by some of these wonderful teachers. Go to www.yoopod.com for inspiration when you can’t make your regular mat class.
