Balancing the Great Wall

I’m sorry that this video was taken sideways, but you can still get the basic concept (I’m the girl in the red jacket). The Great Wall of China is very slick in the snow, especially when your shoes have little traction. I wasn’t expecting snow on my trip to China. What does this have to do with Pilates you ask? I believe practicing Pilates has improved my balance, which was imperative when I basically skied down the wall. You’ll see me do a 360 in this video but I did recover and I didn’t fall once, though there were people falling all around us.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
