Spending the Day with my Pilates Idol: Ana Caban!
We met at Equinox West Hollywood when I was down there in January doing a trunk show for my oGorgeous bags. When I saw her name on the sched, I was like….uhhh yeah right. But when I looked in the group ex room and saw her hair and her posture, I was like OH MY FREAKING GOODNESS. THAT IS ANA CABAN.
So I made it a point to introduce myself to her. I was totally fangirling!!! My heart was beating so fast when I was able to catch her ask she walked out of the studio, but thank goodness I said hi, because here we are today – friends! Ana inspired me to become a Pilates instructor and I am forever thankful to Sue who bought be that DVD. Hahaha. Weird how things come full circle!
Try the total body workout above and then watch my interview with Ana right here. We talk about how she got started, Pilates myths, the importance of sucking your belly button in, and her diet.
Ana is just as beautiful and nice as she is on screen. Thank you Ana for inspiring me to be the best Pilates instructor I can be.
POPsters, you can follow Ana @AnaCaban on twitter or check out her website here. Let us know how you felt after the workout!
Also, tell me…who is your idol? How have they inspired you to strive for your fullest potential?
