Sandy Hauser has been an Archer’s Pilates client for—in her words—”maybe twenty years.” She originally started taking Pilates classes from another teacher in the old Hat building downtown, and loved how it made her feel. Then I took over the classes, and when I moved studios to Walnut St., she came along with me.
Sandy attends classes twice a week: the Friday 8:15 am Pilates Mat class and the Tuesday 8:30 am Open Studio.
Of the benefits of her Pilates she has this to say:
“I love my twice weekly sessions! If I do miss a Pilates class, I can always tell because my body is so stiff. The two classes give me the advantage of one class on the machines and one class on the mats which I believe is the perfect balance for my body.”
Sandy, owner of “Not Yo’ Momma’s Cheesecakes,” is a busy woman, creating and baking thirty (30!) varieties of individual serving-sized cheesecakes. When I asked her what her favorite was she said, “Right now, I’d have to say it’s ‘Tongue-Tickling Tangerine.” That does sound good!
Sandy’s cheesecakes are always part of the Crossroads Chicken truck menu, but she told me that she—and her cheesecakes—will be at Napa Farmer’s Market starting May 1st, the Chef’s Market beginning on Thursday May 17th, and this weekend at Veteran’s Park for the Earth Day celebration.
Sandy keeps her fitness level high through you commitment to her Pilates classes and by walking regularly.
If you’re thinking about starting Pilates for the first time, Sandy recommends:
“Start with a mat class and see how you like it, before moving on to the machines. I love how the stretches feel.”
I agree. If you don’t see something on the class schedule that works for you, bring a friend and together we’ll design a customized class just for you. It only takes two!
