Pilates Plus Travels 
Transform Your Health
5 Easy Steps

We were recently invited to the BEAUTIFUL Chesapeake Bay Beach Club to deliver a presentation on transforming your health!  Wow!  What a wonderful experience. 
Susan was invited by a group of local studio owners who were hosting a Pilates Staycation.  This event runs yearly, to learn more about it and plan ahead for next year, check it out:  Learn More About the Staycation   

Additionally, we learned of their fabulous restaurant, Knoxie's Table.  The menu draws inspiration from their Chef's very own garden and utilizes local farmers and watermen to create seasonal dishes featuring the area's finest food ingredients.  They do an amazing job of connecting locals and special guest to the very best of the Cheseapeake Region.  

We thank you for supporting our classes and teachers when we are off-site and we appreciate these opportunities to grow.   Next stop, CIGNA health care open enrollment event in Washington D.C. on April 2nd, where Dan will get his very first opportunity to run the Smoothie Bike Machine and Susan will teach chair yoga!  We are very interested in taking our Mobile Wellness team to your work environment, to learn more about what we do, visit:  Mobile Wellness Events.

Celebrate Sherri!
This Is How You Do It!

Seriously, this is how you do it!  I have had the absolutely pleasure of working with Sherri P. during six-months of amazing months of health counseling.  All of my coaching relationships are special and I learn from all of you, but Sherri's journey has been one of the real pleasures of my career to witness.  She is transforming and experience new levels of health before my eyes.  This past Sunday, she dedicated her time to her family first, shopping next, and cooking third!  Shown here, she made an amazing vegetable stir-fry for her meals in the coming week.  She also whipped up a beautiful Red Pepper Dressing for her salads and a beautiful Red Pepper Hummus for snacking with vegetables.  Sherri has been "all-in" taking advantage of every holistic health offering at Pilates Plus including:
  • Acupuncture
  • Reflexology
  • Yoga
  • Liver Detoxification
In addition to her health evolution, Sherri works a full time job, is preparing for Project Management certification, is married to her husband Keith and is raising two beautiful girls, Ashley and Brittney--you may have seen them on the yoga mat with her.  When you see Sherri next, give her a high five. Go Sherri!

Animal Love!

It must be the season for building families and animal love!  Marci Vitale and her husband are welcoming home their little cutie Hazel very soon.  Marci is one of our original Pilates clients and currently takes classes on M/W in Susan's "Pilates Rockstars" class.


And, Pilates Reformer and Trampoline client, Marcy Miller, just brought home this little angel, Bella. A reminder, that long-time Yoga client, Joan MacDonnell, volunteers at our local animal shelter and we are just a few miles away from the Prince Georges County facility.  If you are considering a new pet, please think about adoption.  Check out LOCAL PETS
