Clients are often attracted to a Pilates by thoughts of a stronger core, perhaps a flatter stomach.
Given regular practice – perhaps weekly, perhaps more often – the body’s natural corset of deeper abdominal muscles will awaken and strengthen. It’s wonderful how this transfers into more fluid, more mindful movement during daily life.
However, one of the more immediate changes that new Pilates clients report is with their posture. We dedicate time in each class to movement, to rotation, and to isolating extension of the upper back. Sometimes, screentime takes over daily life. Isn’t it refreshing to challenge that habit, to feel an openness across the collarbones and shoulders.

Perhaps you too will find yourself sitting taller, more aware.
Perhaps you too will be adjusting that rear view mirror.
