August News (2011)

Dear Practice Friends,

We’ve had a busy month here, in spite of vacations from many of our regular clients. While on my own vacation with my partner Deb, I finally got to take my first Pilates session at the STOTT Pilates main studio in Toronto, Canada. It was great! Thank you to my instructors for doing such a great job in my absence and thank you for being willing to share your class time to accommodate everyone.

We do have some class changes this month so please see below. As always, you can print off the August calendar for all of our class offerings for August by clicking on the link in the column to the right.

We had a wonderful crop of new clients show up on the scene last month, owing partly to our Living Social promotion for new clients, as well as from referrals from our veteran practitioners. Welcome Stacy Besecker, Matt Carpenter, Anna Clarke, Joyce Cludy, Gloria Goldman, Heather Wagner, Sharon Kaper, Annie Miller, Molly Shanks, Dona Niswonger, Jean Peterson, Ione Potter, Jacob Richter, Nicole Richter, Janet Shanks, Sarah Shanks, Susan Smallwood, Denise Staebler, Mercedes Steiger, Kerry Ulery, and Annette White!

Best wishes,

Patrick Przyborowski

Ella Bella Cookies

When Mandy Groszko’s daughter Ella was found to have a gluten intolerance, she set out to find products that were both gluten free and good tasting. Says Mandy:

“I wanted to make sure she enjoyed all the food her big sister did. I was very disappointed in the chocolate chip cookies available. So I started making my own. Now I want to share my yummy cookies with you. Enjoy the best cookies around, which just happen to be gluten free!”

They’ve passed Patrick’s taste test (2 times) with flying colors. Please contact Mandy at Also:
