It’s been a fulfilling year…
Exactly 12 months ago I was getting ready to make a big transition out of the comfort of a work environment I had known for six years and into a place where I would be the ‘newbie’ again. Not knowing if clients would follow me, I made the decision independent of anyone knowing but clear that I needed the change in order to grow both professionally and personally. I took a leap and landed on soft ground, with my full client list in tow. I’m so incredibly happy I did. During this year, like any other, we all experienced highs and lows. Our community faced devastation, some of us received difficult news in regards to our health, and still others lost close family members. But we also welcomed new babies, celebrated business successes and laughed over silly things that happened to us.
This past year I taught two Buff Bones Teacher Trainings, created and held a new workshop, Restorative Pilates, raised money for The Martin Richard Foundation, and produced my first Pilates inspired tops and tanks. I also reconnected with some Pilates colleagues and completed continuing education. And best of all, spent quality time with my family.
It goes without saying that I connected more fully with YOU, my community. Together we worked toward the common goal of improving your strength – both inside and out. Seeing those changes and gains in you were some of the most gratifying moments of 2018 for me. I also experienced the super gratifying support of many of you pre-ordering my shirt designs before they even hit the printing press. Thank you so much (and stay tuned for more designs!)
As your teacher/coach/motivator/friend I want you to know that in 2019 my goal for our time together is the same: being present, being connected, and working to encourage or inspire you. As we reflect on the last year, let us hold on to what feels good and let go of what does not fulfill us. Let’s enter the new year confident yet vulnerable, strong yet soft, and determined yet flexible. And of course, let’s look forward to more Roll Downs, Teasers and Wunda Chair challenges! 🙂 Thank you for contributing to a great year for me and YDP. Let’s continue to support each other in 2019. See you in the studio!
