I first stepped into a Pilates studio in 2003 when I just had my first born. I already suffered from bad posture but I put on 20 kg during pregnancy and was carrying a baby to breastfeed full time, so I was putting a lot of strain on my neck, shoulders and back. It also did not help that I returned to full time employment after pregnancy, and was spending an average of 10 hours a day in front of the computer. I was in constant ache and pain and I felt like an old lady despite my age. 10 years on, I’ve stuck to my regime of practicing Pilates once a week with Daniel (twice if I am lucky). I had two boys in between and even after two pregnancies, I actually feel better and younger! I started out with Pilates classes as a form of stretching and pain management, but have benefited immensely from incorporating this into everyday movements. Not to mention, it definitely helps in keeping myself looking fit and trim! Pilates is more than a form of exercise, it is a way of life to me. Thanks to Daniel and his team for keeping the ladies in vogue and in shape!
