Hello Avea Pilates community.
While we know our support won’t change the world, we did want to let the Avea Pilates Community know what we are doing to help Ukraine during this unjust and violent invasion of their country. As the crisis began, we made significant monetary donations to relief agencies. However, we just felt that “money” wasn’t enough in the face of this crisis.
We reached out to a Pilates studio owner who was displaced from Kyiv and asked how we can help. She was kind enough to put us in touch with Natasha, who was training for her Pilates certification prior to the war and has been displaced to the NYC area. We are committed to supporting Natasha to complete her training and also providing work for her until she is able to return home. We have partnered with other Pilates studios in the city to provide this support. Natasha has been working hard with us and the other studios over the last couple of weeks and we are delighted to add her to our schedule starting April 13th. She will be an Apprentice Instructor and we are offering a discounted price of $30 to attend her classes.
Please join us in supporting Natasha. We can’t change the world, but we can directly help and support 1 person together.
With love and gratitude always
Carrie and the Avea Pilates team
