Hi everyone. I'm Erica quest. I'm here to talk to you today about active aging, mobility and stability. So these folks are often termed seniors, right? We don't like that word. I like ...


This was a fabulous tutorial. I introduced the exercises into a session I had this morning with my 78 year old client and she was so delighted to learn more ways to improve her balance. Thanks Erika for clear, concise instruction. Would love to have more from you on Pilates Anytime

Hi Joyce and Usha! Thank you for your kind comments. The Active Aging audience is near and dear to my heart and I have a lot of clients in my studio in their upper 70's. I hope to bring more ideas about the "chronologically enriched" in the future. All the best and much love, Erika
OK, I am going to try this myself later today. It looks like fun!
