34: Common Misconceptions about Pilates

When it comes to working out, we all have preconceived notions that may not be entirely true. In today’s episode, Robin breaks down the most common misconceptions people have about Pilates and reveals the truth behind these notions. She discusses the difference between yoga and Pilates, why Pilates has no physical or gender restraints, and why your Pilates workout should never be “easy”. Whether Pilates is something you already actively practice, or you simply want to learn more, this episode is packed full of juicy information for everyone. 

Show Highlights: 

  • Flexibility is not necessary to do Pilates 
  • Pilates shouldn’t be easy 
  • Pilates requires a whole new level of work and control that should feel gentle, but not easy 
  • You do not need fancy equipment to do Pilates 
  • Pilates and Yoga are not the same things 
  • Pilates is not gender-specific, it’s good for everyone
