September is Local Summer at Pilates By The Bay!

Happy Local Summer!

The nights may be shorter but our beaches are still beautiful and less crowded. We still have a few weeks left in summer so take advantage of every second. Keep your pumpkin spice everything away until it really is fall, as usual you will not see any fall décor or even hand soap scents until at least the 22nd.

I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.

September is officially national Self-Care Awareness Month; so I am glad I started it right spending time with family, friends, and at the beach. Last month I asked you “What is it that makes you happy?” What makes you feel good about yourself, and gives you those moments to let go? I highly recommend finding whatever it is that makes you feel beautiful, and doing more of it. We are humbled to be a place to provide some of that to you through Pilates, our community and maybe a pair of leggings from Savvi.

Back to School

September also means back-to-school for many, and this year, me too! We are so excited to begin Pilates Teacher training this month, and I am going through the whole certification process myself starting with the Mat and Reformer course. Enrollment for this class has closed but there will be more. Stay tuned for more information on our new apprentice, and check out the the NEW Teacher Training page on our website for more information.

Savvi, thank you for keeping me, well savvy, this summer. This month I’m highlighting even more pieces, other than leggings, I have been wearing and recommend. New items continue to drop each Friday and sometimes sporadically on Tuesdays. Order Savvi anytime online, don’t forget you can find these and many other items on my site. First time online orders of over $50 use code Share25 for $25 off (not valid for Style Club.)

Join us for a class or schedule a private session

Sundays are popping up most weeks this month. We will continue to keep switching it up using different combinations of Reformer, Tower, Chair and Bodhi each week. All pop-ups are on the schedule. Note, there must be at least 2 enrolled for each class to run.

Bernice is back teaching on Tuesday nights and Gianna is taking Wednesday evenings. 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.

Call 732-300-4917, or Contact Us with any questions or to schedule. Schedule online 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.

Become a Pilates Teacher Right Here at the Studio

We could not be more excited to bring Pilates teacher training back to Pilates by the Bay. Now, we have partnered with Jessica Spillane, another Jersey girl boss babe and master Pilates teacher, to help train the next generation of Pilates instructors. As a host studio we will provide you the equipment and space to complete your Pilates teacher certification as well as mentor you through the process. Along with the online curriculum and workshops from Evolve Your Teaching, you will observe and learn from our community of Pilates instructors and all of you, the clients.

Mat and Reformer Certification begins in September, the first of three in-person intensive sessions is September 17th, but more dates and courses will follow. If you have any interest in deepening your Pilates knowledge even if you do not want to become a teacher, or if you have been considering adding that teaching certification get more information on the NEW Teacher Training page on our website.

Know of someone else who may be interested in getting their Pilates Teacher Certification? Please pass along this information. As always, please reach out to Michele anytime with any questions or if you need any information or links.
