Best Resources to Learn About Pilates

When I started taking Pilates classes, I delved head first and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of information that was available to me.

Whether you’re a student or a teacher, the below resources will help you learn more about the Pilates Method, take your practice to the next level, or held build your teaching repertoire.

The below are my go-to’s for all things Pilates but it’s by no means comprehensive.

I will keep adding as I find more and more to add to my mental file cabinet.
