I find I am naturally sitting up straighter and standing taller, as opposed to just posing that way – it’s now a comfortable, natural response for my body.
Pilates challenges not only my body, but also my mind. This engagement, coupled with the great experiences with everyone that I have worked with at Helios, keeps me coming back. I am constantly amazed at the “aha” moments that I experience from one session to the next!
I love the moment when “I get it”. Those are habit changing moments. The day I realized I was using my breath to calm myself in a stressful situation. The confidence I felt walking into a room knowing I was standing tall and people took notice.
Doing something with Pilates everyday, even if it’s just a plank for 30 seconds or a minute, helps me think about keeping my back where it’s supposed to be and keeping the core engaged. So, it’s really become a part of my life.
