Words from the Master

Joseph Pilates, Pilates’ Return to Life Through Contrology

“By all means never fail to get all the sunshine and fresh air that you can. Remember too, that your body also ‘breathes’ through the pores of your skin as well as through your mouth, nose, and lungs. Clean, open skin pores permit perspiration to uninterruptedly eliminate the poisons of your body.”

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    I’ve been away, and now I’m completely caught up with your blog that makes me laugh, reveals you are as human as the rest of us, is full of good advice, and inspires me to move. Love it.
