Not A Carbon Copy

Posted by on Oct 22, 2015 in News |

This article is somewhat different from others I have posted. It is a confession in a way. I have been a teacher and a passionate believer of the craft I espouse since 1997. Throughout those years I have honed and searched for the most perfect cues and the most efficient modifications and basically, the safest ways to teach people the rudiments of Pilates, and then to move, move more quickly and to feel the freedom of that movement. I know all teachers have their own style and routines of...

My happy place

Fall is a season of introspection and reflection. It’s a changing of seasonal colors and moods and this can affect our thoughts and feelings as we know the grace and warmth of summer will fade and darkness of night comes all too soon. Just like children, freedom seems determined through enjoyable pastimes outdoors and routines of school and responsibilities become ever present. I remember several times throughout my life, being advised to “go to my happy place” when I felt...

The Most Elegant Sport

Recently I attended the Hampton Classics in East Hampton and aside from glorious weather, the event is absolutely wonderful. I am not a novice to equestrian sports as my daughter was an avid rider, but one has an opportunity to stand back to watch and critique as a complete bystander. There are so many events taking place, that, for me, it was like walking through a fantastic candy shop, each venue was equally enthralling to me. Upon entering the grounds the first ring was a young group of...

It is said that the career of a professional ballerina is at best, only 20 years. That is not a long span at all considering that the first 10 are devoted to the rigors of learning their craft. Their young years are spent training and sacrificing for the exhilaration they receive when they have completed a new level or moving up in excelling in their art. Sylvie Guilliem was noticed by Rudolph Nureyev and like his muse, he trained and took a special interest in her as she moved up the ranks of...

Go back to our roots

When I first got a glimpse of this commercial, I was fascinated. As far as it being actually relatable to bnb’s might be debatable. But from my perspective of being a seeker of helping people correct poor walking habits, it was so plain and simple and doable. We can watch a baby walking across the floor, still in its initial stages of missteps, arms flailing to steady themselves, and we are amused. They are not stiff in their joints and they don’t have hips which already makes...

Starting a New Beginner’s Class

First class is Wednesday at 3:30. You must reserve your spot! Please contact me at 516-319-4915. Starting this week, I am happy to announce that I will be adding a brand new class to the existing schedule at my studio. This will be a Beginner class. It will be a slower paced class in which terminology of the pilates syllabus is thoroughly focused on. The perfecting of these beginner exercises will come later on and is/will not be the focal point. There is much imagery and verbal cueing that is...
