Where To Begin – Bonnie’s Top Tips

1. Beginners should at least attend some introductory classes to locate their core muscles and master the Neutral Spine alignment.

2. Look for an Pilates instructor who is REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) registered –

3. Pilates should be incorporated into a training schedule to compliment cardiovascular and strength and conditioning training not replace.

4. Doing Pilates 2-3 times a week for 30 minutes will have you quickly feeling the benefits. You can practice good posture and engaging your TVA and pelvic floor whilst doing mundane jobs like waiting in a queue or brushing your teeth!
