Greetings to our Friends, Family and Dear Clients!
It's been another amazing Summer in Jackson with record visitation in both National Parks and our little Community! As well as some incredible sunsets thanks to some very near-by fires. Which of us couldn't benefit on some extra, breath-focused, mindful movement? We here at the Pilates Place specialize in helping you breath and move and feel better... and we have A/C!
Read on for updates on our Instructors and some summer specials.
The Pilates Place is pleased to announce our first ever summer close-out sale on AlignMed Posture Apparel and Five-Toe summer sandals by Toe-Sox. These remaining items are below cost, so please stop by and check out our remaining stock!
"I wear my AlignMed Capris for every Pilates Mat Class I take, as well as for hiking and biking! They are incredibly comfortable, the fabric is delicious and washes beautifully, and I love that my Hamstrings and Glutes are constantly being reminded to do their job!"
-Michele Dorsey, Owner and Instructor at The Pilates Place
Pam Woodson has enjoyed a very busy summer with her family. Although she does not have a regular schedule with clients at the studio any longer, she has helped us out with coverage during other teachers' absences, which the students have thoroughly enjoyed!
Kristin Painter is teaching on Monday, Wednesday & Friday at the Pilates Place and participants in her small group sessions and Reformer classes have enjoyed her insightful perspective. Her daughter Acacia, has had a fun summer participating in a variety of camps, including a return to Ski Race Camp at Mt Hood.
For Hilary Smith it has been a rewarding summer on the east end of Long Island. This adventure has her teaching Pilates at a studio in the old whaling village of Sag Harbor, the more ‘down to earth’ hamlet of the Hampton’s (per the locals). Though it was still a new cultural experience, it wasn’t so different in the ways expected, and actually has a similar clientele to JH. Hilary learned a lot from the other instructors’ teaching styles and backgrounds, including some fun variations and exploring new tower class progressions.
Outside the studio, Hilary has enjoyed healing salt water swims with new friends and became a regular crew member on Gracious for one of the weekly sailing regattas. There is a wonderful local theater with plenty of great talent from ‘the City’ and as a volunteer saw all four mainstage productions and the comedian Paul Reiser. Not a surprise, her plans are still unknown past Labor Day at this time, though she is hoping to stay in the area a bit longer. Barring an incredible opportunity, she does plan for another JH ski season!
Tina Roberts is almost completely healed from her ski injury and subsequent surgery and has recently resumed hiking! A testimony to the healing powers of Pilates! Her big news is that she has accepted a full-time job as a Medical Aide at Teton Dermatology! Never fear, however, she will continue to brighten early mornings at The Pilates Place with "Ski Fitness Circuit" on Mondays & Wednesdays and Mat Class on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the Fall.
Jill Reich has been helping us out by covering Pam's schedule this summer and by introducing clients to the magic of Pilates and the Franklin Method. If you have not yet had the opportunity to work with her it is not too late! She will be teaching at the studio through the end of September, so call now to schedule an appointment with her. In addition she offers massage at Grace Spa and the Body Sage, or she will come to you, in the comfort of your own home: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kim Armington, PTA has been extremely busy this summer helping patients from all walks of life rehab at Four Pines PT, with her special approach of combining Physical Therapy and Pilates. You can look for her to add a few hours at The Pilates Place to her teaching schedule this Fall. When she's not busy helping her patients heal, you can find her on the Lake waterskiing or surfing!
Marisol Sullivan is still chipping away at PT pre-req’s at the University of UT in SLC, and splitting the summer between the Cordillera Blanca, Peru, and the Tetons, WY. She and her husband Josh teach high altitude mountaineering courses in Peru every May and June, and then head north to the Tetons to guide for Exum Mountain Guides. The semi-migratory life is busy but good. “I am grateful for the many amazing communities that I am graced to be a part of!" If you are thinking of climbing the Grand next summer, we here at the studio can put you in touch with Marisol.
September is upon us and Old Bill's Fun Run is right around the corner (Saturday, September 10)! This year is the 20th Anniversary of the run that has become an iconic symbol of the huge generous spirit of this community. Jill and Michele will be the Runner/Walker for Sierra Club/Wyoming Chapter. If you are moved by the dedication to Wildlands and Wildlife Issues that Sierra Club represents, please consider making a donation through the Community Foundation and Old Bill's Fun Run!
