If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Impact of Pilates suspension with self-awareness on gait and metacognition in multiple sclerosis: Randomized, single-blinded and parallel-group trial
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37537085/

Results: Analysis of group data revealed significant improvement between baseline and intervention phases for Dynamic Gate Index (p = 0.002 for Benson relaxation and p = 0.001 for Jacobson's progressive muscle) and Metacognition Questionnaire-30 (p = 0.02 for Benson relaxation and p = 0.002 for Jacobson's progressive muscle).

As I have been doing Pilates three times a week for 20 years, I thought I had seen all the variations. Whilst I have nothing against this Pilates suspension method, there is no way that I would consider it to be Pilates. They are using some modified exercises that come from Pilates but it's not Pilates. Most of the videos I could find were suitable for very experienced and fit Pilates devotees, they were not suitable for people with motor issues. If you started from scratch with existing motor problems or even a degree of stiffness, you would hurt yourself. The Pilates equipment that will help you is apparatus such as the reformer, cadillac, wunda chair, high barrel and the associated extras that go with them. The Pilates suspension method is for very supple people with a well established grounding in Pilates. Stick with vanilla. You're much less likely to hurt yourself.
