Why Pilates? I love how it focuses on having a strong mind-body connection because over time, I realized, your mind is what stops you from doing many things that your body is actually capable of. I love the precision and control needed to do Pilates. I did ballet all my life and found that Pilates gives me the same happy feeling!
