In January I took two Pilates mat classes; one taught by Brooke Siler and the other taught by Kathy Ross-Nash. Both classes were awesome and for a good cause: to raise money to help Mari Winsor in her battle with ALS. All three of these women are a tremendous inspiration to me! During Brooke’s class, […]

I loved this breakdown of the Saw in Benjamin Degenhardt’s article, The Saw Up Close. I love this exercise. He also recommends some homework- go check it out! And if you haven’t tried it yet, the Saw on the arm chair is a great way to feel the back connection and the feeling of articulating […]

My sister sent me this article by Scott Stabile about “Five Things More Important than being Right”. I enjoyed this quote: “Dr. Wayne Dyer famously wrote, ‘When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.’” There is often a lot of disagreement in the Pilates community about what is the proper way […]
