orking out doesn’t have to mean being confined in a gym all week. As our article on Pilates Glossy shows, there are countless Pilates parties you can join; but that’s not all either. Around the world, there are numerous facilities and venues that let you see the world while giving your body and mind a break. For this reason, fitness retreats have become all the range — and it’s not just reserved for yogis. If you’re looking to travel while maintaining your Pilates practice, consider these retreats with a side of cultural activities.

It looked rather archaic and shabby in comparison to the Reformer and the Cadillac with their mysterious springs and fuzzies. All the Chair had was a maroon leather seat that was rather over padded and […]

But working with pregnant women doesn’t have to a stress. It can be a very rewarding addition to your client base. Yummy Mummy Syndrome is pushing more mums […]
There is a much loved piece of Pilates equipment called the Reformer or the Universal Reformer.
