Owner and Pilates Instructor at The Pilates EdgeWhat originally motivated you to try Pilates?
I was working at a YMCA in Colorado Springs and they received a grant to create a Pilates program. I was thrown in and very overwhelmed at first but determined to succeed and excited to learn. Prior to this I was a certified yoga teacher and personal trainer so I was already living an active lifestyle and Pilates fit right in.In one word, describe your first Pilates experience?
