Keep Your Tree Happy!  Jan - Mar 2013

Kelly Says!

Thank you for a Great Year

I would like to wish you a glorious, rewarding and productive 2013. May your New Year be a chance at a new beginning.  2012 was definitely a year of new beginnings for me and I appreciate all of the support given to me in 2012 by all of you.  I look forward to another year filled with change, growth and happy surprises.  May all of us be continually amazed at what our minds and bodies can do.  

 "You have done what you could—some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."  Ralph Waldo Emerson,

Forget about New Year's Resolutions - This year Resolve to have Sunday Revisits......

We all seem to get caught up in establishing New Years Resolutions.   Experts tell us that most of them are forgotten by the end of January.  What if this year instead of thinking about what we want to change 1x, we think about it 52 x and change it as often as we'd like?  This year I resolve to make resolutions every week on Sunday.  Its so easy to forget to take time out and think about how to make our lives better.  Picking 12/31 is arbitrary, I can celebrate a New Year as often as I like and change my life as often as I'd like.  I can learn from last week's mistakes.  I can always eat differently, exercise more or less, love more, play more.  Join me in a year of evolution not just a day.

Pilates - Do what you can, when you can, however you can!

There are many reasons that I love Pilates!  
  • First, it is extremely efficient.   A little Pilates goes a long way.   I have limited time for myself each day and I like knowing that doing even two or three exercises keeps me strong.  Romana Kryzanowska told me to exercise between clients, that sometimes that would be all I would get and it would be enough.  She was correct!  
  • Second, I love that the movements are simple and they don't hurt.   Everyone can do Pilates.   The exercises remain the same, yet the depth is continuous.  The exercises learned in the first lesson remain at the 100th lesson, but suddenly, they are excruciating.  This one facet continues to intrigue me, even in my 9th year of teaching.  
  • Finally, I love that Pilates can be done alone!   Once you know the exercises, they are yours forever.  No one can take them away from you.  You don't need any equipment.  An instructor isn't required. When I teach a client, I feel that I am giving a gift that will last a lifetime.
