Hope you have a splendiferous Thanksgiving!
Now, come join us the DAY AFTER Thanksgiving (Nov 28th) for a FREE "Work Off that Turkey Stuffing" Class! Don't be a turkey...Reserve now, space limited!
Wendy's 1st video short in her new series is here. Your just a click away from beginning your journey toward... Becoming a Core Whisperer!
**While our Newsletter comes to you monthly, Wendy will be posting a new Core Whisperer video on Facebook every week, so if you would like to follow her weeky series, please follow us on Facebook.
In the world of health and fitnss, "core" has largely become a buzzword, watered down as a profound distinction, and with that any real power of deep understanding and access.
In this enlivening series, we will explore Core as relationship: with gravity, ourselves, one another and our environment. And, how dynamic, life-affirming movement fully expresses itself through the expanded lenses that intersect Pilates and all the great body/mind disciplines…empowering us to… live life with passion, purpose and vitality.
When we open to "core as relationship", we awaken to our wholeness – our fluid resonance. Gravity ceases to be an adversary…and becomes a true friend. We are supported in our engagement with life, in the seamless dance that is our birthright.
Come join me. Let's explore together. Let's follow the breadcrumbs….
With deep love and respect,
• The Envelope please...

• Our Community Partners
Our featured Community Partner this month is Austin's Workers Defense Project (WDP) Our goal is to exceed last year's contribution of $1000...
...by committing 3% of November's total month's revenue. Founded in 2002, as part of a growing national movement, the WDP has raised powerful voice for Austin's marginalized, and often abused, low-income workers. As one of the most established worker centers in the South, the Workers Defense Project is a leader in fighting for fair conditions for working people. Their untiring and dedicated work for the cause of human dignity and justice has provided a source of power and hope for low-wage workers, who have little access to the resources they need to improve their working and living conditions. We are proud to stand with them in our shared vision of a world where everyone has access to the resources from which to live life with dignity, respect and belonging.
