Why Oh Why Do We Do Pilates?

Published on 22nd January 2024

Dear All

Why oh why do we do Pilates?  Because we love it?  Because it's good for us?  Because our bodies need it?  Because our minds need it?  Here's a reminder of the eight original principles of Pilates - Breath, Control, Flow, Isolation, Precision, Centering, Routine, Concentration.  If principles are the foundations to our system of Pilates, then I feel at liberty to add more - because, if a principle is a foundation, then we feel it, we know it, and so we can add away!  Here goes, Conscious Movement, Connection, Inside Out Training, Strength, Toning, Awareness, Release, Calm, Depth, Knowledge, Well being, Balance, Complete System - I'm sure you can think of more and so, if it's a foundation within every session you do, then let's add 'em.  Come and join me at any of the sessions, whether in the Room, over Zoom or Online - and we'll make the most of all the principles.
