Meet Kathleen

After doing 3 months of Older Adult Pilates classes, Kathleen noticed that she was more flexible than she had been in a long time. It wasn't until she was able to put her socks on herself that she noticed just how flexible she had become - she was delighted and said: "I can put on my own socks again for the first time in two years".
