Happy New Year! How have you taken on 2023 so far?
Our award from The Asbury Park Press 2022 Best of the Best just arrived
We were beyond thrilled to have been a finalist in 2022, so maybe in 2023 we can be the winner for the Best Yoga/Pilates Studio in Ocean County. I have my eye on the prize this year, literally! The best way to help us in this endeavor is to share your love of the studio. Leave us a review on Google or refer a friend, and vote for us as the Best Pilates studio in Ocean County when that comes out. We are trying to get some beginner classes started soon for new clients so tell your friends and colleagues, we get our best new clients by word of mouth.
For our Pilates teacher training we had a break over the holidays to catch up on all the seminars, workshops and have time to self practice. January begins the hard stuff, where we will focus on the advanced exercises and anatomy. I love sharing what I am learning with all of you, so get ready to kick it up a notch.

Pop Up Classes and Small Group Pilates Schedule
We are keeping it classic this month. Join Michele each Sunday in January for a pop-up Reformer class. Each week we will review the classic Pilates Reformer sequence, as Joseph Pilates designed. The first two weeks will be the beginner sequence and the last two weeks will be the intermediate sequence. All classes are on the schedule so sign-up if you are interested. There must be at least two enrolled for the class to run.
Classes still are often at capacity so don’t wait to sign up. Please put yourself on the waitlist or reach out to Michele if you can’t get into a class. We will do what we can to get you in. Sometimes we may even add a class or extra spots when we can. This time of year there is a good chance someone has to cancel on any given day.
Call 732-300-4917, or contact us with any questions or to schedule. Schedule online on our website or download the Pilates by the Bay NJ app. Please note we have a limited number of group classes with class size of 5, 6, or 8 but will be adding more classes each month as needed. We look forward to seeing you in the studio!
Register Now To Join Our Wellness Workshop on January 20th
Join us for an evening of full body wellness.
To help support your wellness this year we are bringing back our wellness workshops. Our first one is on the schedule with spots filling up. Join us on Friday the 20th for an evening of Pilates and meditation using Reiki and sound healing.
Start 2023 off focusing on you. During this workshop we will start with a Pilates session with Michele using the foam roller. This will be a gentle class focusing on stretching suitable for all levels even those new to Pilates.
Start with a 30 minute gentle Pilates mat session with Michele. Learn how to use a foam roller to stretch your body and spine and release you muscles. End with an hour of medication using Crystal Pyramid Sound Healing and Reiki with Terri Vassallo from Serenity Renewal Reiki.
This combination raises the vibration of each cell in your body, balancing the hemispheres in the brain feeling released, renewed, peaceful, and grounded.
Terri Vassallo, who you may recognize from classes, will then lead you though a meditation session. During meditation Terri uses a combination of Reiki and this amazing Crystal Pyramid Sound Healing, which reverberates through your whole body. We will have mats available but feel free to bring. your own yoga mat for extra comfort or anything else to aide in your meditation/relaxation such as a blanket or pillow.
I’ve attended Terri’s sessions and am eager to partner with her and bring this workshop to the studio. After the last meditation session I attended I thought some foam rolling would be the perfect addition. Please join us and bring a friend to our first workshop of 2023. We hope to bring you at least one workshop each month. This workshop is on the schedule, you will see it with the rest of our classes.
This is scheduled as a workshop with a cost of $35, so I am unable to use any classes towards payment of workshops.
