In 10 sessions’, suggested Joseph Pilates himself, ‘you will feel the difference; in 20 you will see the difference; and in 30 you will have a whole new body’.
Most people do start to feel a difference after 10 sessions, for example you might feel like you are are walking taller and moving in a looser, suppler way. Any aches and pains may be less frequent. Pilates is also good for your mental health.
