This past weekend it was my privilege to present at the first annual MindBody FitPro conference held at the fabulous Marina Del Rey Marriott California. This first ever conference was a collaborative event put on by MindBody Online and MadDogg Athletics. Primarily a business-oriented conference, it also provided fitness workshops on a variety of subjects for continuing education for fitness and pilates teachers. I presented a business lecture on how to incorporate a mind/body studio into an existing health club which allowed the participants to brainstorm and ask questions in an intimate small-group setting. I also presented Pilates sessions in chair work and matwork using tubing for assistance and resistance, as well as presenting with my fellow MadDogg Athletics colleagues some circuit workouts that creatively combined different apparatus. We had a lot of fun! The classes were small, the venue was awesome, and the Saturday night mixer was a blast...held on the rooftop of the hotel, with a panoramic view of Malibu, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, the Pacific Ocean, and the gorgeous Marina Del Rey area. This picture is from that mixer taken of Zoey Trapp, Kathryn Coyle, and me...the Peak Pilates girls of the conference.
Hopefully I will see many more of you there next year!
