Sitting at a desk for 12 hours a day working on a computer, my shoulders were in constant pain and I had very poor posture. A friend of mine mentioned Pilates so I decided to look into it. During the first month of class, I continued to think "my body is supposed to be able to do what" as I constantly heard Lindsey's voice going with me to the gym, to work, to the grocery store, wake-boarding, everywhere, telling me "keep your shoulders down Dara."
After a couple of months, I began to not be in pain every day and I started to notice changes in my physical appearance and posture, as well, other individuals were noticing changes in my appearance. I will never forget the day a coworker stopped and looked at me and said "you look so different, what have you been doing" and I replied with a big smile "PILATES!" Now a year later, and 25 pounds lighter, my body and mind are much healthier.
With Lindsey's experience in body movement, I am able to take more out of class and apply it in my everyday life and activities. So take an hour for yourself twice a week, the benefits are well worth it!
