Lillian Velazquez is Lolita San Miguel’s Assistant and has had the privilege of working with her for over 25 years. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Puerto Rico and a Master’s Degree in Integrative Education Curriculum and Montessori Method from the Center for Montessori Teacher Education-North Carolina University. She founded Montessori School of Byron in Georgia. Lillian devotes most of her time and energy to the Pilates Method and helping others achieve their goals.
She is convinced that through the Pilates Method one can achieve a total integration of the Body, Mind and Spirit. She has witness how the method has brought balance, health and healing to those that practice it.
I invite you to come join Lolita and I to this year’s Pilates International Heritage Congress in Monchengladbach, Germany. This is truly a special event where we all come together to share our thoughts, passion, memories and experiences. I can assure you that this is a time you will not forget and treasure for the rest of your life.
In 2009 Lolita visited the city of his birth and discovered that except for a handful of people, no one in Monchengladbach knew who Joseph Pilates was. Right then and there she made it her mission that this would change. I am happy to tell you that we have placed a Memorial Plaque where once stood an empty space with a Linden tree at the exact location of the house where he was born. The Plaque honors Joseph Pilates and this Congress is like no other because it has the power to unite us all.
Come share a part of history. We look forward to seeing you. Remember I am just a text, email or call away and always happy to assist you.
