Pilates has been an unexpected delight! I came to pilates after my surgery with the objective of getting specific muscle groups to work better. After each class, I feel “zipped up” as if I have awakened postural muscles that were previously dormant from years of poor posture and injury. After a year of weekly classes, I have more endurance when I walk and greater mobility (less pain!) in my upper back. The experience is a far cry from the pilates I had experienced at the gym or with a video. Katherine provides us with a new, stimulating class every week using different apparatus and pays close attention to us, giving feedback to ensure that we have a safe and effective workout. I leave the class feeling refreshed and uplifted. Once a week is a good idea, but twice is even better.
