I waited too long to experience Pure Pilates! I must admit, I was always too intimidated to go. I’ve known for a long time that the owner, Kym, was a former ballerina and had been trained in the Joseph Pilates method. I’ve also known that some of her clients are dancers. I, however, am a true beginner with physical limitations and thought I couldn’t keep up. Having now attended several of Kym’s mat classes, I wonder what the heck took me so long! It’s true that I may not be at the same level as some of the others in my class, but Kym suggests modifications that are specifically suited to me. I never feel intimidated and, in the end, get the same benefit as my more physically capably classmates. Also, the new studio on Chicago Ave. has a wonderful lofty feel making it a pleasure to be there.
