We are still celebrating our anniversary!
Not only is October our Pilates Studio ownership anniversary, but it is also our wedding anniversary. This year marked 10 years, when we were married in Belmar on the beach. This year John surprised me with a vow renewal ceremony on the beach during our vacation in Key West. I’m sharing a few photos below, these are some of the proofs from the photographer which we just received. So Happy Anniversary all around!!
I can’t believe it has been four years since I took over ownership of Pilates by the Bay and it has been a pleasure to continue to serve all of you and the Toms River Community since the Pilates studio doors opened in downtown Toms River, NJ in 2008. Thank you for being a part of this journey. I am beyond blessed with amazing instructors and fantastic clients, much love to you all! And much love all around!
November Pilates Classes and What’s To Come!
How is October is almost over? I enrolled everyone in classes for November yesterday. Please let us know if you have any changes and we will adjust before billing next week. We will be closed for regular classes and sessions on Thanksgiving Day but look for our annual Chase the Turkey class and maybe some additional classes that weekend, more details will follow in the November newsletter.
This month we are still deep in the beginner Reformer and mat exercises for Pilates teacher training. As a part of training we also have regular seminars on different topics and our last one was on breath. So remember to exhale, something we could all use the reminder to do so intentionally because there are so many benefits to breathing even beyond deeper ab connection. All the more reason I was excited to find that inhale/exhale desk sign.
What we are learning during training continues to show up at the studio in discussions, in many of my classes, and will be the feature of Sunday pop-up classes. No better way to learn than to keep practicing, so we will. Get ready, during November we focus on the intermediate exercises!
Join us for a class or schedule a private session
Starting on the Reformer and ending on the mat, we will complete all beginner exercises from Joseph Pilates’ classical sequence. Sundays will be held ever other week this month and we will continue with this schedule through November, but those have not been added to the schedule yet.
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. There is a good chance someone has to cancel on any given day. Note, there must be at least 2 enrolled for each class to run.
This month is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Have you gotten your screening this year? I did and am free and clear but even happier to report my aunt, who was diagnosed earlier in the year and underwent a double mastectomy, has finished her chemo and is currently cancer free. Please let’s all take care of ourselves! I even went to the dermatologist this month and am happy to report no skin cancer cells were detected, don’t forget to get your skin checked regularly as well, I don’t think there is a month dedicated to that so now is good as time as any for the reminder if you haven’t seen your dermatologist in a while.
Savvi continues to help us with this transition into fall, or whatever season it decides to be this month, with new pieces and more great layers.
