Redefining the Pilates body and examining racial bias with Sabrina Castro

In this episode, Nikki chats with Pilates teacher Sabrina Castro about her experience as a Latina woman and person of color in the Pilates industry.

They discuss:

  • The issues with Pilates being an industry that predominantly features white, thin women
  • How racism and fat bias show up in the Pilates studio
  • Sabrina’s experience with weight loss and how it impacted how clients and teachers treated her
  • How the traditional Pilates and fitness culture promotes disordered behavior around diet and exercise
  • Why representation is important and how opting out of diet culture can empower Pilates teachers and clients to make better choices for themselves
