Happy New Year to all my Pilates friends! I can’t believe another year has gone by so quickly! To all the Pilates teachers, Pilates students in Teacher Training, those in the Pilates community that have come to my workshops I say thank you! You have made my year one that I will never forget. I am so excited to see what the New Year has in store for all things Pilates. I want to especially say thank you to all that came to Vegas to visit my booth and attended my Pilates workshop.
So many memories of the last year and so many amazing people I got to teach, mentor, and just be around who were just as passionate about Pilates as I am. It is so wonderful to be able to share this journey with others who want to get on that path and absorb it all! It has been a wonderful thing to see!
One lovely Pilates teacher that I met this year was Summer. She came to my booth at the PMA and was from the Oregon area where my brother lives so, we started chatting on that as well as Pilates. She was a new teacher and so we had lots to talk about. We chatted a bit on her training, my Mentorship Program, her journey. She had these wonderful flower hair clips that I commented on so, she told me the story of how she found them. She stayed in my mind and heart after that!
This holiday I got a package in the mail with a wrapped gift from Summer. In it was a wonderful note that she remembered I had commented on her hair clips and she had found 2 for me and wanted me to have them. I was beyond touched that she took that effort! This is what I love about the wonderful Pilates Teachers, students and Studio Owners that I have met with this past year. The joy, the passion, the connection is what I love about what I do!
Every year it seems as if I meet more and more amazing people in the Pilates community! It is one of the things I absolutely love about what I do. To connect and share with everyone the work of Pilates and have them get those lightbulb moments after years of teaching or seeing the confidence and change as they go through the Teacher Training Program.
As we say goodbye to the last year and begin the New Year I am savoring all the wonderful memories of the year but, looking forward to all the new ones that are coming with the New Year! A few of the things I am most looking forward to are
Heading to the West and East Coast for my Teacher Training Program and a few workshops!
Meeting new future Pilates teachers as they begin the journey with the Teacher Training
Mentoring a few lovely teachers who want to take their teaching to another level in some way for themselves.
My own Pilates journey continuing as I again take time for my own knowledge and passion of Pilates with others.
What are you looking the most forward to in the New Year in regards to your Pilates journey? I hope that our paths cross and we get to travel down this Pilates road together this year. My New Year schedule is ready and if you want to see what we can do together I would love to connect or if you are a bit lost on what you want for your Pilates this year just reach out and let’s chat!
