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
