    This was a wonderful session. I wish that people would realize that taking regular classes isn’t possible for everyone. I searched for Classical Pilates instructors and came up with four. They’re between a 5 and a 6 HOUR round trip drive so even weekly classes aren’t going to happen. My plan is to take class with each instructor in order to see which feels like the best fit. Then I’ll be able to plan a time when I can potentially visit that area for a few days running and take class daily during that time.

    In the meantime this website has been very helpful. I’ll also share that I took Pilates classes when I was a dancer and so am not totally uninitiated.

    I really appreciate your verbal and tactile cues. Super useful–especially going through the progressions as the center becomes stronger. Thank you!
