GIVING BACK
A Message from Tom & Karen

Tom and Karen - Giving Back

As part of our mission at Center of Balance, we believe in supporting organizations that work to improve the lives of individuals, promote the health of our communities and protect the environment we all share. We highlight important groups and promote their vital work through our web site, at our studio, and by holding special donation-only classes to financially support their efforts. The first Thursday of every month, we donate 100% of the money collected for class — plus any additional contributions — to one of these organizations. These classes are a way for our students, staff, and extended community to learn about essential organizations, as well as participate in raising much-needed funds for their work.

Below are links to past events, and some of the amazing organizations we support. For links to additional groups we support, visit our Good Works page.

We hope you'll join us in giving back!

November 2013
Julian Littleford was one of the rare few people you meet in your life who can inspire you with their wisdom as well as with their heart. Ready to greet you with a warm hug and quick wit, Julian's zest for life was infectious. A former principal dancer with the Martha Graham Company, internationally-esteemed Pilates educator, devoted friend, and loving family man, Julian was a vibrant spirit. He was an insightful teacher and mentor to Pilates teachers all over the world, and brought a level of rigor and integrity to the work that made him one of the most sought-after educators in the field.
