Sandy Shimoda contributed a series of essays to

Part 1 is about how she came to Pilates as a natural extension of her life as a dancer (“Exercise or Expression?“).

Part 2 is an exploration of when to stick to tradition—and when to know if you are grounded and masterful enough to delve into the “gray area” (“The Rules About the Rules“).

In Part 3, Sandy talks about what she gets—mentally, physically, and spiritually—from practicing and teaching Pilates (“Why, How and What It’s All About“).
