Hey Guys and Gals, just a quick review for ITTB readers who are Pilates fans on ‘Pilates: Body In Motion’.
I’ve always been a yoga fan, but about 6 months ago took the plunge to try Pilates – not really knowing what the difference was.
My Pilates instructor was really very good, and I was soon hooked.
Doing what I do with every hobby I have, I find as much information on it as possible and learn EVERYTHING I possibly can.
I don’t know if you’ve searched for Pilates, but you will probably suffer from ‘information overload’ if you’re not careful. I certainly did. I bombarded my instructor with questions as I was eager to learn more. So much so, in an act of defense she threw “Pilates: Body In Motion” at me (OK not literally, but I think she was tempted).
One observation I had was that it was very comprehensive, and it DID answer a lot of questions I had.
I did however, find the exercises tough as a relative newcomer. It’s tempting to have another go at some of them, but I haven’t progressed too much on the Pilates front, as I’ve concentrated more on yoga.
I know more experienced Pilates fans rave about this book, and the reviews prove that – but for me as a newbie, it’s a bit too much. Hope that provides some insight 🙂
