I have osteoarthritis and I was not able to walk comfortably until I started working with Laney at Pilates Body Shaping. Pilates prepared me for having my shoulder rebuilt. After surgery, the physical therapists could not believe my range of motion. Even my orthopedic surgeons love Pilates for their patients and themselves. I have been physically active all my life in work and martial arts. My core strength is better than ever with Pilates.
