Worried

I would like to start Pilates but i'm worried that with all the strethcing and then suddenly lowering your legs and stuff, i'll fanny fart. This is really embarressing. Is there any way to prevent this?

Dear S,

Most Pilates studios are private and the instructors deal with situations, like the one you are referring to, with discretion. A very important part of your Pilates training is the conditioning of your pelvic floor muscles. These muscles are specifically trained in patients that have incontinence problems and the chances of air escaping should be minimized.

Thank you for your interest.

Kind Regards,

James Raaff
