Getting real about Pilates…

I am so excited about this entry today! My online workouts are finally here, before you run off to check out my new store, I wanted to share a little more about the behind the scenes’ action and drama of bringing these workouts to life.

It’s so easy to think that it’s all fun, games and happens easily, so I wanted to get real with you today and share a little more about the process of bringing these workouts to life. Over the last few years, when I’ve shot new workouts you’ve seen me post beautiful pictures on-set: shots of beautiful South Africa, glam photo shoots, smiling poses and the works. But today we take a look at the other half that intagram and twitter didn’t see and hear

During production frustration of days when:

  • Mother nature’s wind or clouds and the city’s buzzing noises disrupts our perfectly quiet scenes.
  • The times we’d have to schlep to the studio at 8:30pm at night after a long day’s work.
  • When people walk right through your set while you’re filming.
  • Or as the blooper’s video shows: the times when I can’t get my words right and waste a ton of time.


Post Production self-doubt: No matter how hard or good the workouts are, there’s always that little voice inside me that will say:

  • “What if no one likes this?”
  • “What if nobody buys it?”
  • “What if…all the horrible things that can go wrong goes wrong.”

That’s the thing about working for yourself and creating something: it brings up every single insecurity that you never even knew you had. You’ll go through a whirlwind of emotions from excitement, frustration, and anxiety, to overwhelm and amazement, joy and back again –  while your facebook feed captures all the glam shots. While your facebook feed captures all the glam shots.

But here’s the thing – if I let my lack of confidence get the better of me:

  • I wouldn’t have move forward,
  • I’d always wonder “what if I had created ….”.
  • I would never would have learned as much as I have or grown as an individual.
  • And most importantly: I would have robbed everyone who’s ever bought my workouts from living a healthier and more active life.

So, here I am: super excited, wrapped in a little piece of nervous with a splash of insecurity with my 3 new workouts and a Pilates Super Pack just for you. I hope you’ll enjoy them, I hope you’ll use them often get fit. And above all I hope that they’ll inspire you to also create your dreams. 

AND NOW our winner – CONGRATULATIONS: Anna akitsosdmd@aol.com -please email me to claim your prize!! 

Join me for my release party on March 22nd at noon at South Boston Yoga, RSVP here.

With all my love,

Pilates with Purpose: The 3 best takeaways!

On Wednesday night, Kristen and I held our second Pilates with Purpose event. We were both a little nervous for our second one. We had so much help from District Hall the first time around to share in the planning and make the event a success. This time, it was just the two of us (admit it, you just sang the song in your head) working through newsletters, word-of-mouth and of course good old social media in the hopes of getting another great group of women together.

PWP315
It was so exciting to see tickets sell like hotcakes on our Eventbrite page when we started pushing it last week. Our goal (and capacity of our amazing venue 315 on A) was 30 people. We couldn’t have been more delighted with our turnout!  22 enthusiastic and fabulous people showed up, and we raised $550 for the Ellie Fund.

A run down of events:

After everyone got settled and took in some of the amazing and breathtaking views that the beautiful Skye Lounge of 315 on A had to offer, we got down and dirty with a kick-ass Pilates session, compliments of yours truly. From where I was standing, these peeps loved their hard workout and took all the extra reps with a smile. I guess it was all part of knowing that we were there for a great experience and a great cause.

What was really cool was how quickly the room broke into chatter after we finished with the workout. Most of us hung around until 9pm, and from what I could tell made some real and genuine connections.  This includes us!

My 3 biggest take aways from the event:

1)  The connections made were organic.  It didn’t feel as dry as networking sounds! No one felt judged or too shy to start chatting with others. We were all there for the same amazing cause and we took advantage of engaging with like-minded individuals. I can’t wait to see what this will grow into and how this group will empower each other!
2) The genuine interest and enthusiasm to help make a difference in our community. Change starts with you and me. We hold the power to make a meaningful contribution with our time here.
3) Fulfillment. Being part of something bigger than yourself can truly add to feeling like you’re living with a purpose. It’s so true that there is no I in Team. Nothing feels as good as working together and being part of a tribe!

All in all, we couldn’t be happier! It was such a great event at a beautiful venue with even more beautiful people!  We cannot wait for our next one – the holiday event!!

 Special thanks too:

Ross Chanowski and Amy Fisher for helping us get the beautiful venue.

Fabletics & the Ellie Fund for filling our swag baggies with cute gear.
