Do not worry about others around you.  Pilates is a mental exercise as much as it is a physical exercise and to be the most productive, you need to stay focused on YOU.  Your body movements should flow with your breathing, which will unite your mind and body, alleviating anxiety and stress.

Your movements should flow like a technical dancer.  Complete exercises with precise, strong and flexible grace, instead of short, quick and jerky movements.  And be as comfortable as you can.  Form fitting clothes, like yoga pants and a tight shirt or a tank top and bare feet are the norm for Pilates classes.

Do not forget to talk with your physician before embarking on any workout program!
