I have suffered from chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 15 years. Before taking up Pilates, I could not kneel down. I had limited flexibility in my joints and found a lot of activities in life – not to mention day-to-day tasks – either difficult or impossible. Since taking up Pilates, I can kneel down, which alone makes many things possible. I have so much more flexibility and, to be honest, my outlook on life has completely improved. I don’t let my disease slow me down and I’m not worried about what the future will bring.
Still loving the classes, which can’t be said for a lot of things I’ve taken up over the years!
