Watching Jen Rene practice her yoga, one would think she was just born naturally gifted - her strength and grace seems, at times, super human. But if Jen does indeed, possess a magical power, it would most definitely be called Pilates. Now, as a woman past the age of fifty, I understand keenly the importance of maintaining a strong and healthy torso, and why I am grateful Jen does not keep her super powers all to herself - but is happily sharing them with all of us, mere mortals.
One of the best pieces of advice Jen ever gave me was to practice Pilates weekly as a compliment to my daily Ashtanga yoga practice. Pilates has helped me build strength, body awareness, and control, that I can then carry through to my asana practice. The benefits of Pilates extend far beyond simply helping 'improve' asana and help keep my practice stable, safe, and everything in better working order so I can function well off the mat too.
