The first time you go, you realise that you've been standing up wrong for your entire life. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Walt Disney Pictures "Have I always stuck my head out too far? Do people talk about it when I'm not there? Am I the girl with the really sticky-out head?" 2. And then you learn what standing up straight feels like and it's kinda mind-blowing.

Once you've had your posture corrected, you'll think about the way you're standing all the time — even when you're not at Pilates.

There will inevitably be one 6'2" woman with hair down to her waist and the bum of a Greek goddess in your class.

You'll feel very conscious of how your gym clothes are less professional-looking than everyone else's and you haven't painted your toenails in forever.

View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @minori_pilates You'll stop because it hurts, but your teacher will soldier on. 8. And doing leg circles will make you want to cry.

Sometimes you will think you're doing the exact same pose as your teacher, and then you'll look in the mirror and realise you're literally not.

When you're doing mat work, it'll feel a bit like you're giving yourself a back massage at the beginning.

Doing a rollover looks like the easiest thing in the world, but it is actually impossible. Twitter: @plankpilates Again, your teacher will make this look like child's play. 14. But doing a roll back is somehow even more painful. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @alfristonpilates For the first time in your life, you'll be able to feel your spine. 15. You'll find it incredibly infuriating when people ask whether Pilates is the same as yoga. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF ABC Yoga is lying down and breathing. Pilates is doing incredibly slow sit-ups for an hour. 16. And you'll hate your teacher a little bit more with every leg count they make you do.

But there'll also be moments when you suddenly do a pose you didn't know you could do, and you'll feel great. Twitter: @bezenflow 18. And you'll start to notice your muscles getting firmer. Twitter: @TGRunFit 19. Also you do get to lie down on a mat in between doing horrible stretches, which is kind of cool.

As soon as you get home from your Pilates class, you'll make the people you live with try out all the poses you did.
