I agree with you completely. I ordered the Windsor Pilates DVD a while back and I used it a great deal when I first got it and the results were great. I am trying to get back in the habit of doing it again. I know you probably helped alot of people out by letting them know this.

Just a note to teachers or moms, I just had a baby 7 weeks ago and taught pilates for most of the pregnancy. Now, I also have a 4 yr. old and with him I gained 60 lbs. I wasn't teaching or anything and he only weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz. With my daughter I just had, I only gained 26 lbs. and she weighed 8 lbs. 3 oz. I taught up until a week before she was born. (modifications had to be made with some things) Anyway, my point is if you've been on the fence about an exercise program...DO PILATES!!! I only have 10 more lbs. to lose and every other day I do a pilates program. Heck, I even have my 6'1, 225 lb. husband doing it with me! (he had cravings during the pegnancy too ;))

I take pilate and I have noticed a huge improvement in my strength and posture. I have also been able to incorporate some techniques in my dance classes and the older students really like it and feel a difference.

I began pilates training because I sprained my ankle. I wanted to stay in shape in spite of the fact that I was forced to stay off my ankle for a while. The results have been better than I hoped for. The Pilates did a lot more than maintain my body through my recovery process. The Pilates enhanced my recovery enormously. I gained strength in my abs, and consciousness of correct alignment, that I never had before my injury. The floor excercises taught me how to more effectively feel the distribution of weight through my hips, legs and ankles. My feet, and ankles, feel more reliable now since I have learned how to use my body more efficiently. It's almost as if the way I stood, before my injury, put my weight onto the weaker parts of my ankles. Anyway, I recommend Pilates for injury rehab. It's great.

So is it a good idea to take pilates cause i am a break dancer and some of the stalls and freezes that i want to do require me to have a strong back and stomache for sure and i want to be able to do them without injuring my self but i heard that it improves your overall health and stamina. darcy wayne bauer

Yeah Pilates can definitely help you out with your break dancing skills. Creating a stronger core makes everything easier and safer from ballet to break dancing to carrying a heavy bag of groceries or box.

I just did my first pilates workout just last night and I can definitely tell that it works. My entire body is sore, not bad sore though, sore enough to know that it actually works. I'm going to do it again tomorrow though to rest a bit. :)
