Meet Lucy! She has been working with Junko Sodeyama for 13 years, and never misses a session unless she is on vacation. Her doctor recommended that she start Pilates as part of her rehab efforts with an ulnar nerve problem. She has osteoporosis, and her poor posture was leading to falls and rib, back, knee, and feet issues.
Here is her story about how Pilates has changed her life: “As a result of doing and continuing to do Pilates, my body has become stronger and I am walking taller. I also do not use my hands while walking on the treadmill. The other day I was walking from the SF bus terminal to work. With my new posture standing tall, I was just observing everything around me. I realized that I had missed taking a right turn to get to my office. I started laughing at myself because I’m seeing things in a whole new light since I’m taller. I love this new me. Pilates has helped me physically and emotionally... If you are contemplating on changing the way you look and feel with your body, you should definitely try Pilates. No amount of money can buy health. It is well worth the investment. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Junko for your caring, gentle, loving support. I wouldn’t be where I am without you. As the song goes, “It’s a whole new world” for me.”
We love having you in our space, Lucy! You are such an inspiration to all of us at SF Pilates.
