Wendy Rogan Carey has been a Guest at TerraLuna since February, 2023 and we'd like to get to know her a bit better.
What brought you to Pilates and how long you've been practicing?
I started Pilates 20-plus years ago. I drove 45 mins 4 times a week to take the classes, the drive just became too much so I stopped going. Fast forward to Feb 2023, after meeting friends at Pickleball, I shared my Pilates story (how I loved it but the drive was too much) and I wished there was one local. A friend said there was and told me about TerraLuna and I literally was in class the next day and faithfully go 4-5 times a week now…I say my morning class is “my coffee” and something I do not want to live without.
Do you have a goal you'd like to share that Pilates helped you/is helping you obtain?
My goals change weekly When I first started in Feb, I just wanted to feel better. I have definitely exceeded that goal. I feel great and striving for more endurance to live an active healthy life.
What class(es) have you/do you take? Do you have a favorite class?
I take Reformer classes 4-5 times a week and going to add Jump class into my weekly schedule ( I CAN DO THIS)!
What is an activity which was difficult for you in the beginning but is now easier?
C-curve (oh my) it definitely is easier, not going to lie, I would watch the clock and pray that the word "100’s" would not come up and wait for “hang up your hand straps”. I still say "oh my", "woo doggie" and many other words but I CAN (AND DO!) DO IT!
Tell us about props! Favorite and least favorite.
I love all the props but my favorite is the spikey ball (it takes you to the next level for sure).
If you had a "Signature Activity" what would it be?
No signature activity, thankful I can do most of them.
How do you define "wellness"?
This has changed thru the years. Back in the day wellness was a size and certain weight (so I never felt healthy) today it is acceptance of who I am, what I can do and what I will do to live a healthy, happy and FULL life.
Would you share a little-known fact about yourself?
I wanted to say “I didn’t talk till I was 2 1/2 years old and haven’t stopped since, but my husband just said the only unknown fact is I didn’t talk till I was 2 1/2 years old... SO with that being said, my little known fact is I married my best friend who keeps me laughing and lets me enjoy being me. I am truly Blessed.
Finally, what is one food/drink you cannot live without?
Am I allowed to say Tequila? Cheers and hope to see you all in Pilates soon!
Thank you Wendy, for sharing a bit about yourself and your Pilates journey!
