I highly recommend that everyone in Zermatt that has never done Pilates before does this. I have been doing Pilates now once or twice a week since winter 2011-12 and the benefits have been endless. I no longer have lower back pain, my posture is different so I sit and stand much better and my core strength is so much better. It would be such a benefit to anyone, but particularly to ski instructors who need this core strength. Anyone that thinks it’s easy is wrong. I’ve sometimes finished classes sweating as much as if I’d been to the gym.
