"I have been doing Pilates on and off since 2005. Ever since I started with Pilates my motto was ‘Pilates till I die’, and it still is. I believe you can still be 100 years old and do Pilates. It will keep your body flexible and your mind alive.
I started with Pilates classes because I wanted to do some form of exercise (and I am not the athletic type) and I suffer from tension in my shoulders, upper back and neck, which leads to tension headaches. The kind and number of classes I have taken per week over the years have varied according to circumstances, but one thing is always the same: miss a class and your body knows it. At the moment I only take one group class a week, and if I miss a class, my upper body is one big spasm the following week. Pilates does not take my condition completely away, but it helps me manage it in a way no medication or physiotherapist can.
The other thing is that Pilates really is the thinking man’s exercise. I think this is great, as your brain also has to concentrate very hard to control your muscles.
Furthermore, Pilates has kept my core strong during my first pregnancy (I failed to go to class during the second and it still shows!), and it helped me to strengthen my pelvic floor and core again after I’ve had my children.
If I could force them, I would have made my mom and all my friends go to Pilates classes to strengthen their bodies and see what amazing things they will actually be able to do when their mind and body work together! Pilates till I die!"
