110: Patrea Aeschliman on strengthening & lengthening with pilates


Welcome to the Peaceful Power Podcast today I chat with Patrea Aeschliman and go into details about pilates and how it can change your approach to your health.


Patrea and I were introduced to each other by an online friend whose hooked me up with a few of my past guests. Patrea and I chat about pilates and how coming from a unfit background can help shape you into the person you are today. Just because your family was not into health and wellness does not mean you need to go down that same path.
