Listen To Your Body
Pilates is a mind-body-spirit discipline that combines stability and mobility exercises with an emphasis on the powerhouse (abdominal, back, and buttock) muscles. No matter your experience level, Pilates shouldn’t be painful. It takes time to develop the strength and body awareness to perform the exercises successfully.
Modifications can easily be made to make challenging movements more accessible, while still retaining the integrity of the practice. Listen to your body and if something feels wrong to you or too much for you on any given day, adapt or skip that exercise.
