Next week's availability and getting on the list.

For the past three years I've been running community class at the Spine Studio #1 (yes, a Spine Studio #2 is in the works!). The community classes are wallet-friendly private and semi-private sessions that are offered to people in the neighborhood and our neighboring artists.

The community of artists, entrepreneurs, and freelance people around Williamsburg live on a different clock (those that actually HAVE a clock), and this includes me. My freelance work as a consultant and choreographer would have me rearranging my work and sleep schedule at least once a week: crunch times, dead times, incubation periods, early morning meetings, late night rehearsals, you get the picture.

Instead of fixed hours of operation I decided to offer a new schedule of availability every week based around my schedule and standing appointments. Reservations are made on a first come first served basis. The result is classes that work around your ever changing schedule, lots of options for rescheduling, and most importantly, no more excuses for not taking care of yourself.

Getting on the community class list is easy. Send an email address, and get a new list of options every week. Hope to see you soon and here's what's left this week:

Tuesday, August 20th

Wednesday, August 21st

Thursday, August 22nd

Corporate services and next week's availability.

Hey, where is everybody? Oh, right it's August.

It's been an interesting summer so far. I've had the good fortune of acquiring some new clients who've trusted me to expand my practice. I've been having so much fun working with some of you on your acting training, voice work, and overall "movement makeovers" for your home and office. I've especially enjoyed the stints I've had with my corporate clients, and would love to add more in-office/ in-studio groups to my client base. If any of you happen to know of a group, corporation or other organization that would like on-site visits, please feel free to give them my contact info. If you're a little unsure of what I do with these groups, there's some information below. Time to sort out my fall schedule! Happy August! Thanks for all your support.

"I design specialized wellness programs, classes and workshops for corporations and schools. I've been doing this in New York City for about five years now, and love it so much that I'm looking to share this work with more people; especially creative people in high pressure environments who work long hours and weekends. For most of these people, finding time for consistent, quality fitness/wellness seems near impossible when you factor in travel time, child care arrangements, etc. I offer innovative solutions for people with these constraints who are looking to maintain high levels of energy, creativity, and concentration.

Some examples of what I offer include:

  • In office private and group visits.
  • "On the road visits" for off-site projects.
  • Flexible hours including midday and late night.
  • Classes designed around company needs at any given moment (i.e. late night restorative yoga sessions and guided breath work during high stress/ high output periods, 30-minute express yoga and Pilates classes for times when there is "no time," ergonomic movement assessments for those with chronic neck, shoulder, back, or wrist discomfort, etc.)
  • Performance coaching prior to big presentations and meetings.

Whether these programs are paid for by the company or the employees organize themselves, what makes these classes so popular is that they're getting customized work delivered to them at a fraction of the cost of gyms and business coaching corporations."
