Doing Pilates on a regular basis has helped me stay flexible, strong and energized. The irksome aches and pains of getting older have been minimized, I sleep better and can easily walk 2 to 3 miles or more each morning with my dog. I am also more aware of my body alignment, balance and posture throughout the day; I pay better attention to how I sit, stand, walk, etc.
The impact of Pilates has shown up in a lot of my everyday activities. For example, I used to grab everything I could possibly need from my bedroom before heading downstairs, because I was not going to make it back up for a while. But now, I can not only climb the stairs with ease, I can run up and down, too!
