Is that book in your bag or you just happy to see me?

One of my best experiences as a Pilates student came from working with a teacher that captured my imagination through images and metaphors while explaining an exercise. It kept my attention and focus and made it just as much of a work in as a workout. Since then I’ve tried to incorporate it into how I teach myself and others. Both in Yoga and Pilates, I have found that it really makes a difference in how students approach their practice.

This article from the New York Times sheds some light on the beauty and the intelligence of imagination. Not to mention a great shout out to the bookworms of the world.

Maybe one of the best muscles to work out is our imagination.
