.. myself doing this. I am not really a pack animal; the notion of classes was forbidding and I’m way too self-conscious! It’s thanks to some new friends here in the village that I’ve been gently coaxed into giving it a try.
I’ve just been to my second class and remarkably, I’m enjoying it! There’s so much I can’t do of course, but that means lots to aim for. If I simply discover my stomach muscles it will be an achievement ;) 23 months ago
a studio near my house and arranged to speak with the owner tomorrow. Their website was a little confusing, speaking only about “appointment” classes and not a specific schedule. However, drop-in classes are $20, which is reasonable. I just want to get some more information from her first – I know this isn’t something I could commit to on a regular basis, but drop-ins would rock. 2 years ago
done one Pilates class before, but it was a very odd class. It was only two elderly ladies who were doing Pilates as a sort of occupational/physio therapy, so the class was very individualized, which was nice. The instructor really challenged me and had a strong knowledge of what she was talking about.
I’d like to take an intro class somewhere in my town to come back to the basics of Pilates – doing the tapes at home is useless for me, because I don’t have that person coaching me to breathe properly and use impeccable form. That’s the only way you get results with this form of fitness, so I’d love to brush up. 2 years ago
