      thanks for the suggestion. unfortunately high impact exercise is a thing of the past for me. i had to hang up my orange theory classes for good. but when there’s a will there’s a way. and Pilates has come to my aide. xo

    I have been doing Pilates for 17 years and swear by it… the best form of self care there is.

    Do you know if there is a similar class in Tulsa, OK? Thx!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi diane! i don’t know of any studios first hand. but a city the size of Tulsa should offer more than one. just be certain that the instructors are certified when looking for a Pilates reformer class. xo

    I’m going!!!! I didn’t know they had early morning classes – thanks Beth, I’ll tell ‘em you sent me….. and I want to look like you at 60!!!!!

    Good for you. Too high impact for me because of hip replacement. But I do water aerobics three times a

    • Beth Djalali says:

      Pilates isn’t high impact at all. as a matter of fact, many dr’s send their patients to Pilates to help with injuries. it does wonders for my knees. xo

    Hi Beth, what a great post, I’ve been dappling with Pilates for a while after having some hip and back issue’s and I’m sure it came from when I used to do Ballroom & Latin dancing. I do go to a Chiropractor and they do run Yoga and Pilates classes but I’ve never actually tried them, after watching this post I think I’m going to. The only thing the classes don’t do is use the Transformer machines which I would really love to try and I’m struggling to find anywhere near where I live that does. While we were on holiday I was doing some Pilates every day but since returning home I’ve hardly done any, which is my fault but I did start feeling g better when doing them more often. Thank you your post has given me the push I needed.

    I just recently started following your blog, Beth. I was panicking, looking for appropriate dressing in my 60’s for my niece’s wedding. You have been a great help. I was happily surprised to see this post about Pilates. It truly is an amazing discipline; my Spine Doctor even recommends it. I do have a background in ballet (nothing close to Ali’s ballet career), and Pilates helps with keeping those muscles strong and flexible. Thank you for this post!

    I absolutely love Reformer Pilates. My instructors are fabulous. The owner is a fireball and so knowledgeable. I have learned so much from her. I attend classes 2X a week. I am so lucky that one of the instructors teaches mat Pilates 2X’s a week at our local YMCA, I have been on a fitness regime 3 years now. Reformer Pilates 1 1/2 years. Seeing the transformation to my friends who take Reformer Pilates was enough to encourage me to try it. I am so proud of myself because I am 65 and exercise 6 days a week. The compliments I receive on how well I look helps keep me motivated!!
