Can I confess something to you?
One of my pet peeves is when people tell me a workout isn’t hard enough for them. I think most Pilates instructors would agree, that if you think a workout is too easy to be effective, you’re missing the point.
Pilates isn’t necessarily about the level or difficulty of a given exercise, it’s about what you’re doing with that exercise in your own body.
Any instructor will tell you that they focus on the basics in their own practice just as much, if not more than the advanced repertoire. Because it’s not about flash, it’s about working deeply in your own body.
