Pilates in a Pandemic
Joseph Pilates, a German born gymnist, boxer and circus performer was sent to a British Internment camp on the Isle of Man during World War I. When the 1918 flu epedemic swept the world, killing approxiamtly 50 million people, Pilates would boast that none of the starving soilders practicing his exercise regime even got sick.
Seems like a good time to try out Pilates! Kristen offers 2 all-levels classes a week. Friday morning at 8:15 and Saturday morning at 9:15. Her intermediate class is not for the beginer and “meets” Tuesday evenings at 5:30.
Joseph Pilates studied animals his whole life to develop natural, full range of motion exercises that would make the human body stronger, leaner and lithe. The exercise regime that he developed for the interned soilders was developed by watching cats and became the rage for ballerinas in the 1960’s. Come move like a cat, breath deeply and move naturally. Stay healthy and strong in this pandemic!
