How Pilates Helped Me Exercise.

By Melanie Bond

I was diagnosed with MS fourteen years ago and have since experienced many symptoms (double vision, numbness, fatigue, sharp pain and decreased balance). I struggled for years to find an exercise plan that would work for my body, with or without symptoms, until I found Pilates.

My journey with Pilates started with simple and gentle movements which also focused on a mind/body connection. Also, the studio team empowered everyone to accomplish their personal best with no judgements - no stress! It felt good both mentally and physically, I walked out better then when my walked in.

I am convinced of the many benefits of Pilates as I’ve experienced them in myself and have seen the changes in many others. I truly believe that regardless of your physical ability a customized Pilates program can help emphasize optimal function for all systems of the body. For these reasons I have chosen to start my exciting journey of becoming a Pilates instructor with a focus to help others with an autoimmune condition.
