FROM MELISSA E., CAA Mom on lessons at Collierville Arts Academy -
Thank you so much for teaching my daughter this year. The Spring Showcase was lots of fun and she is already looking forward to the Nutcracker performance in the winter! I hope to have my other daughter begin dance in the fall as well.
Fondly, Melissa E.
FROM DANA S., Pharmaceutical Sales Rep/ CAA Mom on Fitness Classes:
We - as mothers - are always taking care of everyone, but often we fail to take care of ourselves! Pilates Fusion is an excellent way to have fun, get a great workout, and have a support system of other women of all ages and all sizes! I started last summer with a once -a- week class. I decided that when my daughter went to kindergarten in the fall, I would commit to two or three sessions of working out with Julie.
A former runner, "aerobics" person, and participant in various work-out activities, I needed challenge that would keep me motivated, but something "do-able" for my personal schedule. I am so pleased that my college size body is returning! I now have muscle in my arms and stomach that really never was there before!! No back pain anymore or the typical 30-something issues!
So all you mothers out there, try it out: once a week at first and increase when you can! Stress puts as much strain on your heart as smoking a pack of cigarrettes a day! If you die of a stress-induced heart attack at an early age, you won't be any good to ANYONE!!! And you don't have to be overweight to have a heart attack!
This is a WONDERFUL way to relieve stress, as opposed to anti-depressants! SO COME ON and TRY IT ONCE!! You deserve one hour a week to do something for yourself and your health!!
FROM MICHELLE B.
Online Web Specialist/ CAA Mom on the Student Showcase:
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the last several months. Sticking with my daughter through all of her endeavors of trying to keep the studio floor clean with her Ballet outfit, and turning my beautiful, sweet and shy little girl into what we refer to as a "Sparkling Ballet Princess". She has simply blossomed since being in ballet, and my only regret is that I didn't listen to my Mom and put her in sooner, but we can only go forward, and we will be back in the Fall to continue on.
So, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart!
With love, Michelle
