"First of all, I need to tell all of you amazing people at Pilates Anytime that you are my weekly savior. I have all of my certifications through Balanced Body University and trained under AMAZING instructors (such as Zanya Gold), but I came home to open my studio in a very rural area of upstate New York. Consequently, my ability to observe other instructors is very limited. I use your site to get inspiration and ideas to keep my sessions interesting for my clients. Thank you!!!!! It's very isolating when you pioneer a new Pilates studio in a place where no one has seen or heard of a reformer.
Secondly, I'd like to personally send a message through you to Meredith Rogers. While I love every instructor, I just want to let her (you) know that she makes me laugh and eases my stress when she laughs at herself or says, "I'm not sure how we'll get out of this or make it happen, but we'll find out when we get there!" She has no idea how much that has allowed me to have fun when I teach. Sometimes, I just move my clients "in the moment"(I only teach private sessions for now). If they come in with a certain pain or issue that day, I may not be able to follow a specific class...so her attitude has been happily adopted by me in my studio. I'm like, "we're gonna figure it out!! And have fun doing so..." then they laugh and get moving!"
So, from the bottom of my heart...Thank You. I aspire to be an instructor on PA in the next 5-10 years.
