Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving 2012

Pilates has done a lot for me over the last decade. It has enabled me to start my own business, to create a wonderful studio space full of Gratz toys, uhm…apparatuses, and to literally stand taller every day. I am thankful every day for all the things Pilates gives to me.

Romana says “If you are true to Pilates, Pilates will be true to you.” Here’s just a few gifts from Pilates that are at the top of my list right now:

  1. The ability to overcome inertia and get my body moving day after day.
  2. Ownership of how I feel, and how I am able to present myself to the world: calm(ish), strong and confident.
  3. The ongoing introduction to – and my inclusion in – a community of generous, warm and passionate teachers and practitioners.
  4. My fun and often zany clientele. Yes, I do seem to attract the zany.
  5. My client Lorin Beller for reminding me to take a moment to be thankful.
  6. My workout schedule for this week both pre and post Turkey Day. I am a firm believer in the “Schedule it and it will actually happen” method of working out. And then eat, drink and be merry!

Are you thankful for Pilates? Please share some of your reasons, I would love to hear them.

Happy Thanksgiving!
