It's a shame, National Pilates Day may have come and gone without your recognition. Yoga is still the reigning fitness modality in spas, though larger resorts are expanding to include the equally appealing and toning Pilates. As someone who's done more than her fair share of teasers, hundreds, and rolling like a ball, this Saturday was special. Many Pilates studios celebrated in classic fashion with open classes and even outreach for the global community. In New York City, Uptown Pilates held an outdoor mat class ($10 suggested donation) in the middle of Central Park to benefit Global Giving and the recent Nepal earthquake victims. The class embodied the motto—give back, gain strength, feel great. And that's something everyone in the spa industry can appreciate and relate to.
Does your spa include Pilates classes to help spa-goers tone and strengthen?
