I just finished listening to the first two MP3 recordings of a charming new series of Pilates fairy tales. Pilates fairy tales. How cool is that?
My first thought was oh, this will be great for kids -- to inspire them to do Pilates -- and I think that's true. But fairy tales are more than exciting stories. They take us on a journey of growth and personal discovery, which is why they are so powerful for both children and adults. Same with Pilates, right?
In the tales of Piper the Petite Pilates Princess, we go along with a very young Piper as she learns to strengthen her small body at a beloved aunts studio. In the process, Piper becomes stronger in body and in her person. She begins to discover the benefits of a Pilates practice that go beyond physical strength and flexibility, such as self confidence and enhanced awareness.
I won't spoil the stories for you but I will say they are very sweet and have substance. I found myself personally touched and strengthened by Piper's stories -- the mark of a true fairy tale -- and was reminded of some important heart-felt teaching tips from Aunt Kate (who I want as my aunt) as well.
Piper the Petite Pilates Princess is the creation of Pilates instructor and blogger Marcia Polis. She has sample downloads available as well as purchase of the MP3s.
