I love Pilates because it’s not only an amazing journey to personally practice it but it’s profound to teach it. Pilates is like an onion in that there are so many layers to understand. Joe Pilates was teaching something that was more than just a one-hour workout in the gym. He was teaching you how to control your body, to have balance in your body, to have flow and natural movement in your body, but to carry all of these elements over into your every day being as well. Take control of your life, be responsible for your actions, be smart about how you move, and respect your body each and every day. Live your life and move to your true potential. Everyone has a different potential and a different body structure and this is way Pilates is customized for each individual. We all have different goals, abilities, strengths, weaknesses… and Pilates is about discovering what those are, harnessing them, developing and strengthening them, and integrating them into your activities. When practicing Pilates, you will continually learn something about yourself, you should continue to grow and progress in your practice, as you should as a person in your life. When we stop learning we stop growing. So go out and learn about Pilates and you will discover your true potential. Don’t let your weaknesses or limitations hold you back or scare you. Embrace them and strengthen them. Become a stronger you!
