Joe's Disciples: Power Pilates Instructors of Santa Monica & Westwood give back
I was fortunate enough to be part of a similar Power Pilates event held on Pilates Day '07 to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital. Quite honestly, I had never done Pilates outdoors before and absolutely nothing compares to a vigorous Pilates workout beneath the blue sky with the cool ocean breeze relieving you from the heat of the sun. Curious people spontaneously stopped their leisurely strolls to participate in Pilates Mat classes and generously donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It was an incredibly satisfying day. I'm so happy Nicole Dowell, the local Power Pilates studio manager, is continuing the studios' tradition of giving back to the community with fun events on the beach.
