    Thank you Sandy for sharing your insight on this topic that does Creep up in my head from time to time. What you said answered many questions or doubts I had, and can’t wait for more of what you have to share!

  2. Hi Sandy, thank you for the insight. I like the thinking pattern and will try to work with it. I have a client who comes to me 3x per week and has been with me for four years. She attends a duet with her husband and the two of them work very differently. He is a dream client who switches on his mind when he walks through the door and therefore embraces Pilates with the mind. She however, walks into the door and switches her mind off! I find her very exhausting. She is a super successful career women who is ADHD. She expects me to do all the thinking for her and finds it very difficult to still her mind. She simply does not embrace Pilates and only seems to see it as a workout as if she were in the gym. She is like a duracell bunny. If I ask her to do 10 push ups, she will do 30 push ups – even though her neck takes strain! She gets bored very easily. The only time I can get her to focus on corrective positioning is at the end of the work out once the nervous system has calmed down. I wondered if anyone else has clients like this and how they get through to them!

    yes, good reminder about how our attitude, body etc are different each day. I try to remind myself of that when I am practicing as well.

    Thanks Sandy, very interesting to keep our client motivated and how we can address the present workout. Yes always Reformer and Mat Work must be included in order to know where we are at the present moment. What about you have a client that coming 5 days a week?
    Personally I am using the system in order to made more stronger and confident in the own body.
    I am looking forward to see the next video and see you in Dubai soon.

      Luz – the regularity of the workouts will change and refine the body more quickly! Variety will come in adding more challenges as they gain strength, flexibility, coordination, etc.

  5. So smart Sandy. Can’t wait for the next video!
