Fall Fitness Fridays!

Fall Fitness Fridays!

As a dancer and certified Pilates instructor, posture and core strength has been something ingrained in me from my earliest memory of ballet class.  One of the most common complaints I hear from artists, particularly musicians and photographers (who have to lug around heavy instruments and equipment) is that they have lower back and shoulder […]
