When I first started taking Pilates on the Reformer the handles were foam-ish on ropes. When I started training to become a teacher the handle was metal and wood and hurt my wrist bone. And, I thought why on earth am I using this handle?
I am so happy I wasn’t in a place to make any changes whether to keep the heavy mean handles or the light and soft foam handles. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. And, over time as I learned more about Pilates, connecting my arms to my back and using the equipment as a partner I began to find some love for those metal handles. And, they even stopped hurting.
But, believe it or not, that is not my only answer! And, my Youtube collab partner Andrea Maida also blew my mind with her choice. So, check out this week’s discussion and answer to our viewer’s questions. You can find out my answer here and Andrea’s here!
