Long Stretch

1. What results have you seen from Pilates? (Expected and unexpected)

My flexibility has increased so much and I’m using muscles I never knew I had.  It’s such a fun way to stretch, tone and exercise all at the same time.  I love that every class I take is never the same.  The basic movements are the same, but there is always a different routine, so you never get bored.  I also like that the instructors modify the movements as needed.  

2. What is Pilates’ biggest impact to your daily routine or favorite activities?

I look forward to my weekly sessions and I’m excited to try different classes at REV.  It’s a nice way to unwind after a long day with 18 active preschoolers! I’ve found that I now make a conscious effort to keep my back straight and walk taller. 

3. How long have you been practicing Pilates and how did you find REV Pilates Gym?

I’ve done yoga in the past and wanted to give Pilates a try.  I’ve been at REV for just about two years.  A friend, who is also a member, recommended I try REV.  I did, and love it!

4. Tell us about you! Share your background, family, interests, etc.

I grew up in York, Pennsylvania, went to West Chester University and earned my degree in Early Childhood Education.  I moved to Fairfax about 24 years ago.  My husband is from Barcelona and we met through a mutual friend.  We have been married 23 years, have three children, and our toy Cockapoo Lola.  Sam is a rising junior at VCU studying Psychology.  Dalia is graduating from Robinson and will attend SCAD in the Fall to study fibers.  And Joseph is a rising sophomore at Robinson.  I am currently teaching in a Head Start preschool, with 18, 4 and 5 year olds at Robinson Secondary.  I like to take long walks, read, and make tons of different arts and crafts.  I also love to travel the world 🙂
