    34. Sitting on the sidelines and how to step up

    As we get older, many women consign themselves to sitting on the sidelines whether that be in sport, on holiday or even in the
    bedroom. We talk about how we, as women, can avoid this happening and also how we can help ourselves to move back into the centre of the action. We also share how Pilates can help with our body image, confidence and that all important parents’ race at school Sports Day!

llllllsaa ,

Don’t be a chair…

As a newcomer to Pilates and a bit of a sceptic, this podcast has given me an insight and interesting perspective on the benefits and considerations. I love the chair analogy, and I’ll definitely from now on be using the upstairs toilet 😊
