What prompted you to begin Pilates?
Some years ago I was living in Boulder and working full time in Denver leaving me with little time to stay in shape. A friend encouraged me to consider Pilates. So glad she did.
How many years have you been practicing Pilates?
On and off for 20 years. Mostly on.
What are some of the most influential or important reasons you continue with your Pilates practice?
I truly think Pilates keeps my body strong, agile and more comfortable. The exercises push me to use my body well, thus minimizing the effects of aging and osteoarthritis.
How has Pilates effected your life?
I have had two knee and two hip replacements. I prepared for the surgeries with Pilates; and, as soon as possible, resumed Pilates. Pilates was a blessing.
What is your favorite Pilates exercise? and why?
Do love that figure four stretch. Hmmmm!
