Ok, you are probably thinking to yourself “what is FA?” It stands for Friedreich’s Ataxia, a cause very near and dear to my heart. It is a rare degenerative neuromuscular disease that often affects/weakens the heart! I am a Pilates teacher and a Mother of four- my oldest son was diagnosed with FA in 2010. Our lives changed forever on that day and our new normal sank into our hearts. This also changed the direction of my own Pilates journey!
