Actually the question I hear more often is ‘Why do YOU do Pilates?’
Everyone has their own “WHY”, or at least they should. My ‘why’ started when I was seeking treatment for bad hips. Really bad. I’m talking dislocated bad. After an injury at about 6 years of age both my hips would dislocate at any given moment. Was quite a party trick for a while as the head of the femur could actually been seen bulging forward from where it should have been. Years of well meaning therapy later and I was left with arthritis, pain and minimal range of movement.
When I was in my twenties a friend suggested Pilates and we went together to the local gym for a group class. I had never heard of it before and had no preconceptions of what to expect. However, I also did NOT expect to be asked to leave the class midway through!! My friend and I found the exercises quite difficult
