Whether you are new to Pilates or trying to convert a friend or family member over to Pilates, there are usually a lot of questions about what Pilates really is and what "the protocols" are when you are beginning a practice.
Honestly, I'd like to say "you do you, Boo" - which I think you totally should do "you", but there are actually a few things that are helpful to know before starting a practice or to know if you are newer to Pilates [like the answer to "should I wear underwear?"].
So, here's my plan...
I outlined some topics to blog about over the next year - please feel free to message me if you'd like to see any other topics!
Why should I try Pilates?
Is it true that ANYONE can do Pilates?
Am I too fat to practice Pilates successfully?
Will Pilates help me lose weight?
What is the best type of studio to work with?
What does each piece of equipment do?
What are all those little gadgets that looks weird?
Is there a cardio aspect to Pilates?
What are my session options at the different types of studios?
How much does Pilates cost?
What should I wear? *I'll cover the underwear topic here :)
What should I expect at my session?
What if I can’t do an exercise?
What if I fart a lot?
How many times a week should I do Pilates?
How long should a session be to give me benefits?
How long does it take to see results?
Should Pilates replace my current movement practice?
What is the difference between the Pilates Principles and the Fundamentals?
