The Channel Islands SailTime location, (there are four other locations in California and 60 across the country and around the world) is an award winning sailing school as well, having been awarded "Outstanding Facility" by the American Sailing Association for the past three years. Each year we teach a variety of sailors from never-evers to refreshers for folks who used to sail before.

The History of Pilates from a recent Pilates Influence newsletter:

Born in Germany in 1880, Joseph Pilates created the exercise known today as Pilates to achieve a workout that engaged the mind and body connection.  He wanted to create exercises for all, regardless of age or fitness level.  He started building the foundation for his new phenomenon during World War I while working as a nurse rehabilitating disabled soldiers.  He redesigned the hospital bed using the springs from the bed and pulleys to provide resistance. Joseph brought this new form of exercise with him to the U.S., working not only in rehab but with famous dancers - George Ballentine, Martha Graham, just to name a few. Today the exercises and equipment designed by Joseph are now an integral part of training for all athletes!
