I love scheduling classes and sessions at Lightspace whenever I travel to Chicago for a few reasons. One, to maintain my exercise routine while I’m away from home. The therapeutic exercises of Pilates help me keep an old hip injury from flaring up when I’m away from home (and my own bed). Two, it de-stresses my trip because I’m not really a city person. I like the calm atmosphere. It’s quite different from other studios I’ve been to where they are too chatty and loud and in your face, which is quite distracting. LightSpace gives me the peace I need to connect to myself and my body. And three, I like the style taught at this studio. I’ve taken private sessions and mat classes here with a few different instructors, and they are all very knowledgeable about anatomy and movement. Plus they use great cues that really I connect with, which makes each exercise more meaningful and fun. Basically, If I lived in Chicago I would be a regular at LightSpace.
