Also, I want to share a couple of pictures from the Pilates class I taught last night at Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in Charlotte. Once a week during the summer, Lululemon-South Park offers a free class on Tuesday nights inviting different instructors to teach. I was honored to be asked, although I was a little nervous because I’ve never taught a class this big! I had a  great time despite the rain and loved having Core Studio Pilates and Yoga Instructors join me!
