June 2003 Chapter Meeting Minutes

Meeting Attendees: Jennifer Smith, Eric Ahlstrom, Madeline Zook, Martina Thiel-Poblotzkii and Maureen Lyons

The meeting was a "Pilates for Equestrians" clinic and was held at Dynamic Movement Physical Therapy Rehabilitation and Wellness Center at 487 East Plumb Lane in Reno.

Denise Montagne, Physical Therapist and Certified Pilates Instructor, gave an introductory talk about Pilates - its history and theory based on working the body from the "inside out." Conscious breathing and stretching are a big part of Pilates, with concentration on strengthening the torso, and lengthening and strengthening all of the muscles.

All of the participants in this clinic appreciated the Pilates exercises so much, that Denise arranged for a special one-hour class per week for 6 weeks, to start, to be held for the participants. This class will be specifically geared towards equestrian athletes.

(Note: This class has now been holding session for 20 weeks, with Jennifer, Madeline and Maureen still attending. The class is held every Wednesday at 12:00 noon and is open to anyone who wishes to participate.)

The clinic ended at 9:00pm with everyone feeling less stressed and a lot more flexible than when they first arrived!
