Frequently Asked Questions
Why exercise with Pilates?
Pilates is an effective at home workout that you can do with little to no equipment. The classic Mat Pilates class uses a cushioned mat, your body and gravity. Pilates is the only movement and exercise system I have found that not only gives you a great workout, but connects you to yourself and invigorates you for the rest of the day. People can move with Pilates as part of a recovery program or for sports enhancement and everything in between.
Where should I begin?
If you’re new to Pilates, just getting back into it, or looking for extra guidance, try one of the FREE Pilates Challenges.
What do I need to get started?
If you’re just starting out I recommend a Pilates mat which will provide cushion for the joints while providing enough support for the exercises. A Pilates mat is thicker than a Yoga Mat. Once you try some of the classes, you can expand your at home Pilates studio with different pieces of inexpensive Pilates equipment such as balls, a Pilates ring and resistance bands. See my recommendations here.
Do you recommend anything besides Pilates Workouts?
Yes, I encourage leading an active life above and beyond the time you spend on the mat. Walk(faster), bike, run, swim… Whatever else you like to do, keep moving with it and Pilates will help the rest of your activities.
