A message from Nancy -
In 2001 I began my quest to find the quintessential place to open a Pilates studio. I drove past 3302 West 44th St and knew instinctively that this was the perfect place to build a Pilates community. In 2003 Centerspace Pilates Studio was born in Linden Hills.
Over the Past 12 years, Centerspace has been a place for us as teachers to practice the art of teaching and for you as loyal students to learn the many benefits of this amazing practice called Pilates. Centerspace has introduced thousands of people to Pilates starting at a time when many, many people didn’t know what Pilates was, let alone how to pronounce it. We have educated many, and come a long way since then!
As you well know, Centerspace has some of the finest teachers you will find anywhere. They are also some of the finest people I have ever worked with. I know they have become an important part of your life too. Their collective knowledge and their commitment to improving the quality of your health and wellness is obvious and evidenced in their constant pursuit of deepening and expanding their understanding of the work. I can’t say enough about how proud I am to have been surrounded by these amazing people.
Centerspace has also contributed to the education of hundreds of Pilates professionals that have come from all over the country to study with some of the top educators in the industry including Mary Bowen, one of Joseph Pilates original students. Some of the other Master teachers include Kim Haroche, Amy Alpers, Rachel Segal, Cara Reeser, Deborah Kolwey and many more.
Contract to Expand …
In Pilates you have heard the concept of contracting a muscle to expand its functionality. This idea has been resonating for me as I consider my vision for the next few years. Looking at what’s next, my curiosity is drawing me to the possibility of changing the aging paradigm. I want to create ‘inspired aging’. We’re all doing it so let’s do it with health and vitality! I’m excited about pursuing this passion and I’m hoping to enroll many of you as my ‘test market’. The number one recommendation to maintaining a healthy mind, vital body and emotional wellness is exercise … so you’re already in the sweet spot!
Thank you for your loyalty and general awesomeness for the past 12 years. I can’t wait to see what’s next for all of you!
