36: Does Pilates Work? Real Women, Real Stories

In this special episode, Robin features stories from Sisterhood members as they share what brought them to the Sisterhood and the abundance of goodness it has brought to their lives.

Silvia, Emily, Jamie, Julie, Dana, Bryony, and Lauren all have unique stories and perspectives on what the Sisterhood has done for them. All innately relatable, they discuss the dietary restraints, workout pushbacks, and mental strains they were experiencing before the Sisterhood, but how joining in the discipline of Pilates has empowered them not only on the mat, but off the mat too.

Join Robin in this special episode to hear more about what the Sisterhood has offered so many inspiring women and what it can do for you.
