Pilates lately has played a large part in Royal weddings. With Pippa Middleton’s bottom nearly stealing the show at Kate and Williams wedding in 2011.
We know that Meghan Markle is a big advocate of Pilates having done it for years. Although Meghan uses a type of reformer for her pilates practice, Mat Pilates is just as effective. In fact Joseph Pilates originally designed his Pilates equipment to help with the technique for Mat Pilates.
