Pilates for Runners

A regular Pilates practice, much like running, teaches you about yourself and inspires you to believe in yourself. I can’t tell you how many of my students have been amazed by the discoveries they have made about themselves in their lessons – they are so much stronger than they thought they were or than they ever gave themselves credit for! I think we all spend a lot of time criticizing and trying to “fix” our bodies for how they look on the outside, and we don’t necessarily believe it’s possible that there is so much awesomeness waiting to be discovered on the inside. We could all use a little more of that in our lives, right?

Here are my top 5 favorite things about Pilates, and why I think every runner should dedicate time to it every week:

I highly recommend every runner look into taking a Pilates class – find a good studio in your area and give it a shot! I am teaching at EVOLVE Movement in Raleigh and would love to see you there! Contact me directly or reach out to the studio for scheduling info.
