Sunday February 14, 2016 we kicked off our Pilates has Heart event. We had so many wonderful people show up and donate to Texas Heart Institute and the mat class was fun and according to those participating, challenging.
The morning started off with Terri Dome's husband Steve speaking about Terri's life and what Washington Ave Pilates and Texas Heart Institute had done for her during her life. He spoke of all the wonderful work that Texas Heart Institute does, most specifically for women, like Terri.
Then the Mat workout began with Hilary Opheim starting the first half and Courtney Lindsay with the second half. After a full hour of Pilates everyone stayed and enjoyed some wonderful breakfast tacos, pastries and drinks from El Topo food truck.
The weather was breezy and cool with the sun shining in for the class and fresh air all around.
We are excited to see how this event grows each year, hopefully raising more and more money and awareness for women's heart issues and cancer.
We want to thank Carla Valencia with Local Magazine here in Houston for her support, help and marketing for this cause. She was also a wonderful friend to Terri Dome and we know this is a special cause for her as well as us at WAP.
