I love Andrea Maida’s “Inside the Pilates Studio” series. This week she interviewed Mariska Breland, Pilates instructor and creator of Pilates for MS. And speaking of Mariska Breland, she wrote this next article on the Fuse Pilates blog and answers the question,  How often can I do Pilates?

This is a great quote by Brooke Siler on the Well & Good blog about Pilates and walking: “We think of Pilates as an exercise technique, but it’s really a methodology of movement..”.
