“We celebrated Pilates Day and ‘GRRoW with Pilates’ [by offering] free mat and Reformer classes with a donation to GRRoW (Golden Retriever Rescue of Wisconsin). Dogs were at the studio to meet students all morning.” —Courtney Weis, Harbor Athletic Club & Wellness Studios, Middleton, WI
“We had a five-minute mat class, executing the exercises in Joseph Pilates’ original mat order. This is the fourth year we’ve hosted this event.” —Denise Maffia, Pilates Physique, Lake Norman, NC

“Teaching a great outdoors session, including drinks, bites and gifts with 100 percent of [the] proceeds to benefit education and scholarships at St. Helena Montessori.” @denisedenise825, Napa Valley I am a Pilates Reformer instructor in small town. I started at a country club years ago [during] a rough stage in life. Within this deeply challenging time, I dove straight into Pilates, learning all that I could. I now own my own studio. It is small… but I enjoy it so much! I am still learning every day, and my clients make me smile and enjoy life. We have grown in three years from 40- some clients to about 1,500+ with little advertising, just a lot of word of mouth. I love showing women and men that they can do this, that they have to make time for themselves and what a better person they can become with fitness and nutrition in their life. I wanted to say thank you for this cool magazine. I look forward to it coming in the mail and read it for weeks. I learn from it new little moves and tricks. —Wendy Gill, Pure Earth Pilates, Hermitage.
“So proud of you, Cassey! Thank you for inspiring us endlessly and changing our lives for the better. Weed out the negativity and keep excelling!” @instasanm” Love that your body looks real
Pilates teachers Amy Taylor Alpers, Rachel Taylor Segel and Debora Robinson Kolwey celebrated a very special occasion on March 26—Debora’s 60th birthday. “We are so proud, honored and grateful to have had Debora on our staff for 25 years now! We’ve celebrated many birthdays together already and plan to celebrate many more to come. Having three first-generation Pilates teachers [sisters Amy and Rachel studied directly with Romana Kryzanowka, and Debora with Eve Gentry] on our faculty is what has always made the depth, substance and strength of our school so incomparable.” Amy Taylor Alpers, The Pilates Center, Boulder.
A MANLY MAG
I love the magazine! Just wanted to drop a line of thanks for including more men on the scene, along with all of the other fascinating, quality material. I am a former Marine who discovered Pilates while working in sports medicine. Some of the men would be somewhat reluctant to the idea of being on their backs with their legs in straps, and say, “What in the world are we doing?” To which I would respond, as [I’ve been told] Joseph Pilates would sometimes say, “It’s good for the body!” And then I would tell them what the first NFL player I worked with jokingly told me, that the NFL stood for “Not For Long.” I would let them know how Pilates could potentially lengthen their careers, along with enhancing their abilities on and off the field. Since then, I’ve trained with, been mentored by Lolita San Miguel and continue to learn from many others. I have a studio and m proud to report that the male clientele continues to increase. Once again, a sincere thanks for your vision and all who collaborate in making Pilates Style a powerful force in the health and wellness industry.”
