831 days to go…Pilates

This comes from my beautiful and talented Pilates instructor, Marena.

I’ve asked Marena to assist me with some Pilates information, fitness tips and so on.

This is her first contribution…I hope it inspires you to give Pilates a try.

I find it to be amazing and wonderful. It’s reshaping my body, makes me feel good and it’s helping me get in better shape.

I’m stronger and more fit and that’s definitely from doing Pilates.

Try it…it’s truly amazing and you’ll love it!
