When you begin a Pilates practice, you will initially learn to move your joints with efficiency and proper alignment though their full range of motion. Finding efficient and well aligned movement patterns requires a focus on subtleties, and you may not “feel the burn” at first. Once you have learned optimal movement patterns you may decide to challenge yourself by practicing Pilates with increased resistance (or load) or decreased support — Pilates can challenge even the strongest athletes.
“IF YOU INCREASE STRENGTH IN A MISALIGNED BODY, YOU WILL STRENGTHEN THE MISALIGNMENT.” –Eric Franklin
A Pilates practice can help to prevent:
- Wear and tear on the bones.
- Increased risk of injury.
- Soft tissue irritation.
- Nerve impingement.

When Jo turned 48, she took up ballet here in Bishop, and her teacher, also a Pilates instructor, introduced her to Pilates to help her find increased strength and balance. After a run-in with breast cancer and consequent mastectomy in 2011, Jo re-turned to Pilates to learn how to regain her range of motion on her affected side.
