Anyone Do Pilates?

I've been in Pilates for 6 weeks now and I love it! My gluteous maximus (butt) is firmer, my back muscles are less tender and problematic and it is easy to do. I am stronger than I have ever been! My class is one on one.

Wendy--

I am looking at one on one classes right now. Wish I could get a friend to go in with me--huge price cut! Anywho, are you using the machines then?? I would love to do that--think it would be great for my fibromyalgia..even better than the mat class.

ok im the newbie on this one, i want to start yoga or pilates, whats the big differance...im not sure which one to do??

Hi Moongirl, from what I understand pilates has been around since around 1915 and is a specific method of physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, elongate, and align the body, used in sports training as well as physical rehabilitation- so it's good stuff. Yoga, on the other hand, has been around for thousands of years and involves a physical piece (like pilates) with specific postures combined with a mind and breath awareness- so there is a connection between mind, body, and breath through movement. It moves energy as well as emotion that is blocked within the body so there is a physical as well as emotional transformation. If that makes sense?

I personally love yoga and it works for me, I love the challenge of it and I like the feeling of well being it gives me. The only pilates I have tried was Winsor pilates and I just didn't take to it like I did yoga. My mom tried both yoga and pilates but she preferred pilates. She has some knee, hip, and wrist injuries and found it difficult to do some of the foundation poses in yoga such as downward dog and child's pose (this is not to say you can't do yoga if you have injuries it just didn't feel right to her) so she made her choice accordingly.

I would suggest maybe you try both to see what suits you best.

The doctors recommended I start doing pilates to strengthen my bones. Does anyone else do this?

Pilates is awesome! I was introduced to pilates by my figure skating coach and have been addicted ever since! Not only does it make you feel stronger, you feel more balanced relaxed and healthy! And I haven't met any1 who hasn't seen results yet!

Yep... I started pilates several years ago and it helps my body feel at its best. I actually started teaching it which led me to create a web-page dedicated to it. See my profile for more info!

Cheers to you all feeling your best, Always!

I love Pilates and Yoga too and take one class a week and see results, but i think to see huge improvements you need to step it up to 2-3 times a week. I hear the pilates machine is good

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
