"Pilates reformer classes help me develop and maintain my strength, my balance and my flexibility. I started attending the classes because I had bad arthritis in my knee, to delay surgery as long as possible....That was three years ago. I’ve prepared for surgery and recovered from surgery and still I continue with Pilates reformer classes because I enjoy the effect of them on my body." Ann
