A program initiated by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), Pilates Day “is an annual, international, community event celebrated on the first Saturday of May every year.
The Pilates Day mission is to foster the public's appreciation and awareness of the Pilates Method through a network of varied, innovative, and high quality grassroots Pilates events accessible and affordable for all.”
Although I am currently not a member of the PMA (yet! Stay tuned…) I believe that everyone who has a body should be aware of the wonderful rewards and enhanced quality of life that comes with the discipline of a Pilates practice.
Pilates Day 2013
Last year I had so much fun at a Pilates Day event that I simply had to write a post about it.
+ Pilates Day
= Pilates Nerdfest '13
I am not sure if it is required by the PMA, but any good Pilates Day includes cake.
So what's shakin' this Saturday? May 3, 2014
This annual conference presented by Dana Santi and Gratz Pilates is always jam-packed with information and guaranteed to fulfill all your Pilates Day desires and more. Diverse workshops from Jay Grimes as well as members of the Authentic Pilates Union will give you 3 full days to nerd out in style.

Celebratory Mat workout?
Wherever your Pilates Day takes you, celebrating formally at a local event or workshop or privately working out with some exercise favorites, why not do a few extra sets of an exercise you really don't like very much but that you dearly, dearly need.
I solemnly swear to do 5 sets of the Saw instead of 3 – and maybe an extra one to the right while I'm at it.
Argh…and the Swakate on the Arm Chair.
I know, I'm a party animal.
Followed by cake!
