What you'll do

We'll meet at the bank's grand lobby for a recount and a mini-tour of the bank's fascinating background and the history of Pilates, both of which will take us back to prohibition times. The class is designed for people with lower body mobility impediments but it is a bona fide challenging workout and will begin with breathing and appropriate warm-up exercises followed by 45 minutes Pilates chair session. We will use a Magic Circle to strengthen your core, arms, back postural muscles, shoulders joints and sits bones when appropriate. Regardless of your fitness level. This class will challenge and inspire you. After the workout, we'll take it to a fully accessible brewery nearby where we'll get to taste their beer and get to know each other.

Myriam

I'm the founder of CatskillsPilates, a green Pilates studio devoted to teaching real pilates wherever we may meet. As a third-generation Pilates teacher and a multi-award-winning creative director, I'm inspired by places and the energy within. As a long time New Yorker and TV executive I've spent many years balancing an exciting but demanding corporate job with a much-needed escape house Upstate New York, all while resorting to Pilates to lubricate joints, alleviate the eternal lower back pain from endless hours in front of a computer, and to keep it positive. I bought a former bank building in Port Jervis and left corporate America with the intention to bring back to the community, an effort still undergoing. This experience will help me in doing so. Thank you!

More tips

I'm grateful you are here. This will be an experience for me too even as a comprehensive Pilates teacher and an immigrant who has dealt with many handicaps to survive, I have never taught a wheelchair class perse. Please bring an open mind, be ready to move and let's kick ass. BUILDING IS WINTERIZED
