November has flown by in beauty and warmth, yet suddenly there’s less light, color, and a little less time seemingly. Give yourself the gift of staying healthy, vibrant, and alive by making the time to come to the studio.
As most of you who know I am usually not at a loss for words, but it’s been a quieter time in my life, making my practice and teaching more focused. Do you understand and experience mind/body connection? You will love coming to the studio over the next few weeks. We have surprises, gifts, and a couple of ideas for unique classes to unwind, relax, and rejuvenate this season. Connect to power and light with the Meditation & Winter Solstice gathering, Sunday December 20 @ 4pm, Stretch to Strengthen (all classes), and more MELT Method (Dec 5, 12:30) to focus on neck/shoulders/ribcage. Our fabulous massage therapist, Fran Ahrens is also available for massage, feel free to let us know when.
This coming holiday is a time for being with friends and family, of celebrating life with all of it’s joys and sorrows. My heart is full of gratitude for your presence in my life, at the studio, and your dedication to your own practice. My gift to you this year at the studio has been to keep it a bright and happy place to be, to empower you to heal your injuries and strengthen weak areas, and to foster a sense of community. All of our reformers have been power cleaned and checked for safety. Our new fleet of Spine Correctors will arrive very soon to be used in private lessons, Tower, and Mat classes.
Our biggest gift to you is our growing community of teachers. When the teacher is ready, the student appears! Fran, Lauren, Sue, Ed, Candice, Annette are all ready for YOU, as am I. We strive to do our best always, to give you our utmost attention to detail to move you and help you feel your best, and to customize your private lessons in a way that facilitates your breath and core awareness. Move with power and light, no matter what you do, with ease and grace.
From our hearts to yours, we absolutely know that Pilates works to bring you good health. Whether it is a heart pumping Cardio Barre class, a mat class in which we search for our own flow against gravity, or a Reformer Series, your excellent experience here is our focus. If you are new to the studio, WELCOME and keep coming. You will truly be amazed if you give it a chance. As Joe Pilates wrote in his book, Return to Life:
“Remember, too, that ‘Rome was not built in a day.’ and that PATIENCE and PERSISTENCE are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor. Practice your exercises diligently with the fixed and unalterable determination that you will permit nothing else to sway you from keeping faith with yourself.” – p 20-21
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most memorable year ever! Your outpouring at my husband’s wake, your steadfast support throughout the whole year, and your unconditional love keeps me dedicated to my practice and therefore to you. It’s a circle of love. As our motto for this year draws to a close, we hope you still:
FEEL THE DIFFERENCE in 2015.
