Pilates, Patience and Progress…
My story is a long and complex tale of health issues, physical pain and stiffness. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at the age of two and the devastating disease took its toll over time. In 2008, I received a gift from God; a kidney/pancreas transplant which gave me a second chance at life. Now at the age of 48, I am six months into my dedicated effort to be my best, both mentally and physically. Thanks to Jocelyn Simpson and Lisa Browning at Core Bodyworks, positive changes are happening. Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and therapeutic massage are the new tools in my healthy life toolbox. The mechanics of my body are changing from halted, stiff and painful to that of flexibility with inner muscle strength, increasing ranges of motion and an overall feeling of well-being. I am amazed that I have reached and continue to strive for goals that I thought of in the past as unattainable.
