Another Response to the Recent Article Reporting Declining Pilates Numbers
If you haven’t heard about this article that claims Pilates is declining in interest, you can catch up by https://pilateslessons.org/best-price-on-viagra-from-canada/!
This author, Dana Auriemma, speaks eloquently about one of the reasons given for this decline, that we as teachers are too critical.
I so agree with this critique and with Dana’s solution so have a look at this – nicely written and great points.

Why Don’t They Like Pilates? – By Dana Auriemma
I once had a woman leave my studio in tears.
It was her first Pilates session ever. She was a fit woman in her late 30s with two young kids and a regular gym workout routine. She was scheduled with one of my instructors who I would describe as quite possibly the sweetest, most patient and kind instructor I’ve ever known. And I know that there was nothing unusual about this session – no odd incidents occurred. So what happened? Why was my client so upset?
She hated the experience.
The degree of instruction, cues and corrections were overwhelming for her. She hated having to process this much information and the subsequent feeling that she wasn’t doing everything ‘right.’ It was not the kind of workout experience that she wanted to have or was comfortable with.
For many people out there, it doesn’t matter how amazingly intelligent Pilates is or the benefits that it provides. The fact that Pilates is an incredibly effective and healthy method of exercise doesn’t persuade them to practice it. Why? It’s not that they don’t believe in the benefits. It’s that they don’t enjoy the actual process or practice that it takes to get those benefits…..
