Places for Pilates
If you are considering this form of exercise, ask first
about an instructor’s training. If a highly qualified personal trainer
takes a one-day workshop and teaches just the very beginning Pilates
mat exercises, you may be able to get something out of it but you
are not getting the real thing. Watch out for the "one day and
teach everything" crowd. Keep in mind that a beginning Pilates
class should moves slowly — there’s lots to understand.
A recommended resource is "The Pilates Body," by Brooke Siler
(Broadway Books, 2000), $18. Siler, who owns re:AB (a studio for
in NoHo, New York), offers photographs, clear instructions, and
for the complete Pilates Mat.
