Mon, July 04, 2016

Have you noticed any changes since starting your Pilates workouts? I can remember one of the very first changes I ever noticed was one day I was in the supermarket pushing my trolley. I felt "taller" and noticed that as I was walking I was actually engaging my core muscles without even thinking about it! I felt great! My posture was improved and I even felt like I was thinking clearer!
