    Dear Vicky
    It was nice to find your work on the net. By chance. I’m analyzing it better, and slowly, according to my time availability. I will definitely contribute with some donation, although I don’t have many financial resources. I am 68 years old, retired, and have substantial family expenses. I will find a way to set aside a small portion to contribute, if the conclusion is against the opinion I already have of your work.
    Finally, I congratulate you for the excellent organization of the site, for the quality work you produce, and for the excellence of your communication.
    All simple, yet truly efficient!

      Thank you Joaquim. So pleased you are benefiting from the classes. Although donations from our community are much appreciated – as they support the running costs, please do not feel compelled to donate if you cannot really afford to. One of the motivations of creating pilates live was to make Pilates accessible for everyone. All the best. Vicky.
