On the first Saturday of every May, we celebrate our profession on the national stage with Pilates day, this May 6th! We in the community know the benefits and virtues of practicing Pilates. On Pilates day, however, we get to bring our method to the general public with exciting games, demonstrations and real discussions on health.
