I went to the gym for yoga class last night and saw that there was no Yoga but instead “pilates” class was scheduled. So I stayed and gave pilates a try ’cause I needed the workout anyways. I found that pilates is awesome. “Pilates” and “Yoga” are both very similar… just slightly different. With “pilates” you can still get a flexible body ’cause that’s what it’s for. If you want a flexible body, you either take “yoga” or “pilates”. “Pilates” definitely feels a little different than Yoga, though. After my “Pilates” session last night, it made my legs feel a little weird. Maybe a little sore walking around but that’s good! You want to feel like that. I’ve always felt that if you’re not feeling “sore”, you didn’t get a good workout in like the old saying goes, “No pain, no gain” is so true if you think about it. I really liked pilates a lot and would like to do a lot more of it.
I really want and need a flexible body ’cause it’s important. Of course, with my scoliosis might be a bit challenging ’cause my back can’t bend forward or backward at all (I have the harrington rod) but I can get a flexible body with the legs and arms, though.
I still don’t have a very flexible body yet ’cause I have a long ways to go. I am feeling it as I improve little by little the more I do these things. It should take me about a year or so to get a flexible body but I’ll get it. Soon I’ll be able to do leg splits and all kinds of cool things which is what I want.
