Joseph Pilates did NOT say Pilates is only for slim, white, heterosexual, able bodied women, however privilege of access means this has become the perception of Pilates. Pilates does not exist in a vacuum and thus has been subject to the ‘isms & the dominant capitalist mindset that plagues our society. Our community has been sold a toxic Kool aid for decades and it's time for that to shift. We, as individuals, have the responsibility to educate ourselves and ideate a landscape where everyone thrives. This is where we start, raising everyone up to be the best possible version of themselves through pilates.
"Change happens through movement and movement heals"
