Journey of the Rhode Runner Podcast – Episode 11: Pilates with Dawn Casella

On this episode, I am joined by Dawn Casella, my first personal trainer. In addition to personal training, and teaching group classes at the gym, Dawn specializes in Pilates, and has her own Pilates studio in the gym. I had not known much about Pilates. It is a field that could benefit everybody from grandmothers, to professional athletes.
