PRANCING – A SPRINGY, RHYTHMIC WAY OF MOVING

Fast Eddie’s love for Pilates grew when the director ran a studio out of her home. Here, Eddie spent countless hours assisting abdominal work for clients by lying on their bellies while they performed supine work on the reformer.  His 6.5 lb bodyweight was quite the challenge and clients may contribute their super strong core muscles to his presence.
