Re: [IPk] pilates and BGs

Hi Di

I've tried to pilates and to be honest the class I went to was VERY calm,
even more laid back than the yoga I've done, although it was pilates for
beginners so I'm sure it steps up a gear at some stage, but you don't get
out of breath or work up a sweat or anything like that.   It's mostly
concentrating on breathing and posture, lots of stretching etc, lots of
lying down too! :)

Hope this helps with what to expect.

Kind regards
