{thank you Esther!}

I cannot believe it has almost been a year since my “Journey Back to Berk” began! I didn’t mean to take this long to write my second entry, but I have to say I have been a busy girl since returning from my training in England last April (2015). Just a year ago I trained with Esther Fairfax, the one and only daughter of the legendary Lotte Berk. I had no idea how much this experience would change how I looked at exercise forever. When I first traveled to meet Esther, I was a trained Pilates, as well as an “American Barre” instructor. I call the type of Barre I was trained in “American” now, because what I learned in my time with Esther is that there IS a difference. A BIG one. What Lotte created truly was a work of art. It changed my body to not only be stronger than it had been before, but leaner. Don’t get me wrong, I had muscle before, but I wasn’t limber and sleek looking in my legs and core as it is now. My body feels the best it has since I started teaching fitness classes. Luckily, I was able to capture the full essence of the technique (which I now call the “Essence of Esther”), because as many of our clients at the LONDON method studios have found out this year, it’s much more than just exercise. A powerful thing happens when you learn how to take control of your body and use your mind to make your body do things you may have thought it couldn’t do when you first started. I love seeing this happen with each person who comes through the doors at TLM. I can’t wait to go back to England in a couple weeks and learn even more from this fabulous woman. Thank you Esther Fairfax for dedicating your life to teaching your mother’s work so that we can all benefit from it. I actually can’t thank YOU enough!!
