I was asked recently if I was proud of all of the accomplishments and global growth of Polestar Pilates. As I thought about this I realized it would be inappropriate to be proud of these accomplishments, but rather so grateful to be surrounded by thousands of individuals who are ambassadors of Polestar’s vision and spirit.
For almost 30 years I have been traveling around the world learning, growing and sharing through the Polestar network of students, graduates, educators and licensees. I have been very inspired by the company’s growth and continued to be inspired by its potential to make a positive impact on the world. I am convinced this is due to Polestar’s powerful and inspiring ambassadors. An ambassador is one who carries the spirit of their experiences and beliefs and shares it with others. I have observed this being done in so many ways and by so many people with different strengths and attributes. Polestar graduates, educators, researchers and volunteers make all the difference and I am eternally grateful for each one of them.
We have been working diligently to incorporate the spirit of Pilates into real life experiences. We know that our best sources of communicating this message are you and the thousands of happy graduates and clients who experience the Spirit of Polestar on a daily basis. This spirit is reproduced by being kind, by having compassion for others, by listening instead of always speaking, by observing rather than knowing, and by experiencing all that life has to give.
It is my New Year wish and prayer that we all might bring a little more joy and health to the lives of those around us. We can do this by inviting neighbors, family and strangers to discover the benefits of Pilates and more importantly to discover the Polestar Spirit. Let’s make a difference in the year 2017.
