So it’s 2015 and you just signed up for your first Pilates class (or your first Pilates class in a long time).  Pilates can be a lot to take in all at once.  It’s pretty overwhelming.  Just remember no one learns it all the first day.  I’ve been doing Pilates for over a decade and I’m still learning about it.  Not helping?

Trust me.  It’s worth learning.

Know that’s it’s okay to break it up into pieces.  Learn the moves.  Then learn the breathing.

And if there are a few things you’re stuck on like what is the different between neutral and imprint, check out this video.
