The Strength Training Wars: Pilates vs. Kettlebells by Charlotte H. Patient Expert Posted Thu 19 Feb 2009 5:29pm Branching out beyond the adorable-yet-small-thinking tiny tots with their eyes all aglow crowd, Santa Claus made a pit stop at the YMCA this year. In an effort to reach an older and more lucrative crowd, while coal was not on the agenda - although I'm sure the resourceful and charitable Y folk would have found some use for it that would not have ...

Pilates is: Being in the Moment by Elaine E. Healthy Living Professional Posted Sun 24 Aug 2008 5:43pm I've been listening to Oprah and Eckhart Tolle's XM Radio class on his book, The New Earth. They also talk about another book of his, The Power of Now, and how it is to "live in the now" and "live in the moment".
