Pamela Hasselbring, co-owner of Pilates MN—which moved to Plymouth from Wayzata—stresses the importance of staying healthy all year. “It’s very important to stay healthy with your mind, body and spirit every day,” she says.
The pandemic also brought health concerns to the fore. “COVID-19 showed us that those with underlying issues did not do well if they contracted COVID,” Hasselbring says. “Now, more than ever, it’s important to work on all parts of our health. The holidays are tempting, and it’s best to continue healthy programs. Indulging a bit is OK, but when we do too much of it, we pay the price physically and mentally.”
To help people stay on the right path, Pilates MN offers a free MOVE Zoom meeting at 7:30 p.m. December 7, highlighting Tips for Staying Healthy During the Holidays. Another free MOVE Zoom meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. January 4 and will address Keeping Healthy Resolutions with the MOVE Zoom Tracker. (The Zoom meeting code is 412 678 9348, and the passcode is 797295.)
During COVID, Hasselbring says Pilates MN developed the MOVE Method for Well Being, which is free for anyone. “This 13-page program [found on the website] will help you eat right, sleep better, discuss mental health and will get people moving,” she says. “You can keep track daily with the MOVE Tracker that helps you get on the path to better health.”
Along with Pilates classes, Pilates MN offers strength classes, physical therapy, rehabilitative massage and dietician services.
