You want to learn more about Pilates but you’re unsure how to go about deepening your practice. And, I hear ya, it’s hard to know if you should simply do more Pilates, go to a workshop or a Retreat. If you’re a Pilates client you may even wonder if a workshop is right for you. Should you just go on a retreat or take more Pilates?
You are busy! I am busy, he and she and they are busy! It seems that the more we make things easier and quicker to get done the more we have on our plates to do. And, as deadlines loom over our heads that vacation we keep saying we are going to take continues to get pushed onto the backburner. And, then even your day to day escapes like going to the gym or cooking your own meals get shoved and you end up saying “you’ll do it tomorrow.” With life being so busy it is too easy to not do the things that our bodies and minds need which is to take time off, relax, unwind and strengthen our muscles. Would you travel more if it was easier to plan? What about if your getaway was planned for you? Would you take more time off for your mind and body if it was affordable?
As a Pilates instructor, I practice Pilates at least three, mostly four times a week. I practice what I teach! I want my clients doing Pilates with me or at home a few times a week and maybe a few minutes extra on their off days. When you do Pilates something amazing happens. Your mind focuses solely one what you are doing in that moment. The whirlwind slows, the angst, nerves, stress and excitement of the day take a chill pill for that moment.
