New House in LA, not L.A.

Finally I have finished putting everything away and organizing my new home.  I really love it!  The home is the perfect size and layout with a separate entrance for Pilates and PT Clients through front door and foyer into the Pilates studio.  I have loved decorating for each holiday.  Tour the Garden and see my new “spool” and screened-in back porch! Who can live in Louisiana without a screened-in porch?

Tremendous Thanks!

A tremendous thank you to all of you in the TheraPilates® Programs at the Capitola Recreation Center for the amazing Farewell! I am so grateful for your beautiful cards, flowers, gifts, songs and words of gratitude and encouragement! It has been such an amazing journey watching you progress in your strength, posture and balance!

Please scroll down to view all the photos of our groups (“The Lifers, The Early Birds, and “The Slackers”) from the day as well as the beautiful piano sonata played by Tom and Karen Cole!

Take a moment to look at this lovely card created by Karen Cole depicting the “Fountain of Youth” and all of the ways we can be derailed! Thank you Karen, I am so impressed not only with your artistic talent, but with your perfect summary of the principles!TheraPilates Fountain of Youth
