Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

The Reformer

Today was Day One of my five week Foundation Level Semi-private Apparatus Session with Kurt at the Move Studio in Long Valley.   Actually, Kurt was wonderful to work with, very supportive and knowledgeable.
This class is a 55 minute semi-private (up to 4 people) session using the reformer, mat, tower, chair and small apparatus. No experience is required, but they do recommend the 4 private sessions before joining a group setting, which is fine with me because I would be pretty uncoordinated in a large group.  As it is, I already told Kurt that I won't remember where to put my hands, or which strap to hold, or where to put my tush or feet when I return next Wednesday.  He assured me that it takes time to remember everything and seemed pretty confident that next week's session would be fine.  So far I'm feeling good, just trying to remember to pay attention to 'scooping'  my core - which is not an easy thing to find on my body these days.  Kurt assures me that it's there.  We'll see.  Out to dinner tonight with my hubby.  Here's a picture of what a pilates reformer looks like:
Ciao Bella!


  1. What is the reformer? It sounds intimidating!

  2. Hi, I added a photo of a pilates reformer machine to my blog post. Love, me.
