Check Out The Local Talent
Chris Corson, Sculptor and Student of Pilates

We don't mean to be braggin' on you all, but can't help it.  Susan's client, Chris Corson was recently featured in the Greenbelt newspaper for his artistic work and contributions.  Chris is an accomplished artist and currently has several pieces on display, including some locally.

Chris has been taking Pilates Reformer classes with Susan for several years and has progressed within the Method very well.  Many of his art pieces, of the human body, feature the core, so it is nice to to have a student who "does the work" and creates the art that displays the work too!

Our Oldest Client Youngest At Heart

We want to wish Dorothy Troutman, 97, a Happy Belated Birthday.  Pictured here with her two young daughters, Sandra Wiseman, and Diane Hickock, all three take our Monday 12 noon Bellicon Trampoline Class and have been jumping with us since class inception.

Ms. Dorothy has served in many influential roles through Upper Marlboro's historic journey, including leading the cause for the Equestrian Center to be built.....and did you know the artwork on the equestrian center tower was taken from a picture from her family farm?  So, if you think you can't do something, think again!

Health Coach Corner
Glorious Greens

Green veggies are the foods most missing in modern diets.  Learning to cook and eat greens is essential to creating health.  When you nourish yourself with greens, you will naturally crowd out the foods that make you sick.  Greens help build your internal rain forest and strengthen the blood and respiratory systems.  The color green is related to the liver, emotional stability, and creativity.

Nutritionally, greens are very high in calcium magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and vitamins A, C, E, and K.  They are crammed with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll, and many other micro-nutrients and phyto-chemicals.

When you get bored with your favorite greens, try to be adventurous and try greens you have never heard of--rotate between bok choy, napa cabbage, kale, collards, watercress, mustard greens, broccoli rabe, dandelion, swiss chard and beet greens.

Method:   Try a variety of methods like steaming, boiling, sauteing in oil and water, waterless cooking, pickling.  Each methods has benefits, for example, when boiling, you have a lovely, nutrient dense broth left over which you can use to: sip, add to base of soups, cook rice and quinoa with instead of water.

Make Up Policy Change

Missed Classes

We offer make up slots for any cancellation with 24-hours notice. Make ups are not guaranteed, 
but we make every effort to give you options.  To cancel a class and request a make up, complete a make up  ticket when you in the studio (ask your teacher), online (on our website), or by email (it's that easy!)  Generally, someone will respond within 48 hours.

Missed Private Lessons

If you cancel a private lesson with less than 24-hours notice, we will make every effort to offer you a make up lesson, in the same week.  If you are unavailable to make up the lesson, we will offer you a make up in a group class.  We know that emergencies happen and do our best to remain flexible and offer you options.

Policy Change

We will email you options for make ups, so it's important that you read your email.  We will only be able to offer you additional make up options one time.  We are committed to keeping our pricing and cost for classes and service as low as possible, in turn, we need to reduce administrative costs of doing business.
