One day during the summer after an evening church service, I noticed a colored picture of an anchor on this mana€™s forearm.
Another decade passed and then we entered a time of technology, laser technology that could remove onea€™s unwanted tattoos!
Within the past ten years, it seems that the popularity of tattoos is at an all-time high: expression of oneself through ink on skin is common now. My kids are elementary school age, and we often frequent the public pools in the summers to escape the heat. I work as a counselor in a public school, which gives me the opportunity to visit with many students and their parents. My Hella€™s Angel view on tattoos, unless of course you are in the military, changed about seven years ago.
As I mentioned earlier, tattoos are prominent among professional athletes, especially so in the NBA.
Pilates Studio Ashland - Testimonials ?My name is Rose Singarella. I am confident that you will benefit immensely with Belkis and Pilates.
The poet John Keats once wrote an ode to a Grecian urn and its painted figures frozen in time. I got my first inkling of Fianoa€™s potential at a dinner party in New York back in the 1990s. One such family was that of Clelia Romana, who founded the Colli di Lapio winery up in the mountain district of Avellino. If you havena€™t tried Fiano before, start with the Fiano di Avellino DOCG, coming from the grapea€™s birthplace.
Maffini made his name with KrA tos, a pure Fiano from three vineyards around his familya€™s original property. Ita€™s no accident that the Riesling reference keeps popping up, this being the exemplar of age-worthy whites.
Therea€™s also weightier stuff coming from experiments with extended skin contacta€”normally a technique for making reds, not whites.
While being held under house arrest there, Paul received a visitor named Onesimus, whose name meant profitable or advantage. I myself would rather ponder a kylix drinking vessel, preferably one decorated with pretty vine tendrils and a party-hearty Bacchus. The grape varieties that Pliny the Elder described and Julius Caesar drank are alive and well in Campaniaa€”or Campania felix, Latin for a€?fertile countryside.a€? Blessed with an agriculturally ideal climate, what was once the breadbasket and playground of ancient Rome today boasts over 100 grape varieties, many brought by Greek settlers. The big three are Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, and Falanghina, which most people learn about in one fell swoop. Tagging along with my friend Nina, I found myself at a wine collectora€™s table in a loft overlooking City Hall. Pliny noted how bees (api) favored the wine made from vitus apianae, particularly when its natural sweetness was enhanced by partially drying the grapes.
Mastroberardino and Feudi di San Gregorio are the largest producers and the easiest to find.
Maffini and De Conciliis are both boutique wineries (100,000 bottles) run by energetic men in their forties, whose families previously made wine in a small way. In a quest for quality, these winemakers are now experimenting with site, soil, and cellar techniques. This basic Fiano, fermented and held for six months in stainless steel, is delicious and laser-precise, with mango, kiwi, pineapple, and a refreshing acidity.
But Maffini is showering extra TLC on his new Pietraincatenata cru, giving it partial fermentation in oak, then six to eight months of aging and batonage in new barrique. This estate is known for a powerful Aglianico called Naima (and for its devotion to jazz; a€?Naimaa€? was a John Coltrane ballad). Antece (a€?ancientsa€? in dialect) macerates for 10 days on the skin and spends six months on the lees, or spent yeast. I was diagnosed with 4 bulging discs in my lower back. By the time I got to Belkis I was desparate for the right kind of help. But really, why stare at an old pot to dream about the past when you can experience it here and now? It was they who founded Naples in 600 BC and colonized the coast down past Vesuvius, which Roman emperors and epicures later gentrified with sprawling summer villas, whose airy porticoes extended out to sea. Other than the DOCG status of Fiano di Avellino, wine educators present them as equal in stature, like the prongs of Nepturea€™s trident.
I dona€™t remember much about that dinner except for this: I tasted my very first Fiano di Avellino there. That blight was followed by the devastation of World War II, which left Campania felix smoldering.
Scientists are fairly sure Plinya€™s apianis was named after its place of origin: Appia in Plinya€™s time, today called Lapio, located near Avellino. Being closer to the sea, the microclimate is warmer, so this Fiano tends to be rounder and more opulent while retaining its lovely minerality.
Luigi Maffinia€™s grandfather was a buffalo farmer (for mozzarella), while the DeConciliis family raised chickens.


But in 2002, Luigi bought land near the Greek temples of Paestum, and thata€™s whata€™s got him jazzed these days.
The cru Perella (a play on per Ella, or a€?for Ellaa€? Fitzgerald) has a lighter dose: three days of skin contact. So far no one was able to really help me and the medical profession just basically told me I had to be on pain killers the rest of my life, and probably headed for surgery, which was not an option for me as I am super health conscious and only consider medication and surgery as a last resort. Upon my first meeting with Belkis I knew intuitively that she was right for me. Ita€™s true they all possess a certain sea-breezy character, offering intriguing minerality and acidic high notes that are as zippy as a spritz of Meyer lemon, making them ideal companions to the cornucopia of seafood found on the coast. During post-war recovery, the government encouraged farmers to plant prolific workhorse grapes like Malvasia and Trebbiano. Later they found a market in the Italian immigrants who sailed to Argentina and America and pined for a taste of home. Whether fiano is a corruption of apianis and his vitus apianae is our Fiano is still a matter of debate. Both had vineyards, but Maffinia€™s father planted his a€?for fun,a€? while the DeConciliis parents made some vino sfuso for local trattorias and pizzerias, then sold the remaining grapes.
The limestone-rich parcel, called Pietraincatenata or chained stone, is wedged high on a rocky slope facing the sea.
Both come from their oldest Fiano vineyard (which increases concentration) located on a cooler eastern slope (increasing acidity). When Onesimus ran away, he probably took with him money and goods which belonged to his master Philemon. Post-war, when other farmers were ripping out native vines, Mastroberardino stood steadfast.
On the day of our visit, Bruno De Conciliis poured a 2011 Fiano called Donnaluna that had 24 hours of carbonic maceration. The Perella is partially aged in acacia wood, adding roundness, but without the tannins of French oak. He built a new house there too, transplanting his familya€”a display of confidence, if there ever was one.
So in fact, one shouldna€™t sell Fiano immediately.a€? But because of market demands and limited cellar space, her Fiano goes out the door eight months after harvest. But it didna€™t really sink in until I spent time with local winemakers and saw that for them, therea€™s no question: Fiano is king. Being one of the largest producers around, Antonio Mastroberardino encouraged the best of his grape suppliers to start bottling under their own name. The 2012 Donnaluna returned to being a textbook Fiano, with a wonderful salinity on the finish.
As the wine opened, lemon curd and white jasmine came through, followed by toasted hazelnut on the finish.
Her vision of whats right for the individual person, knowing exactly what to do for them is unique, and makes her one of a kind.  When I first started working out with Belkis I was in a lot of chronic pain and extreme weakness. It was full-bodied and creamy, yet maintained a bright acidity that preserved its freshness. Within 6 weeks of working with her I was well on my way to being pain free and rapidly become structurally stable and stronger. Paul, however, honored the social tie that bound a slave to his master and respected the duty Onesimus owed to Philemon, his master.
Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. I do it at least 2 to 3 times per week, only one on one.It is very very important that you have a one on one trainer to keep you safe and doing it properly. Paul was about to send Tychicus, a co-worker, to Colosse with a letter Paul had written to the church there.
Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon. Onesimus went willingly as a penitent Christian to seek his master's forgiveness and to return to his service in Philemon's household. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf. She studied at Joe Pilates' original studio with teachers directly in his lineage, and thus she can offer both the classic workouts to your level of intensity, or do sensitive, individually-tailored rehab work. Slaves, such as Onesimus, who were brought back to their masters were often treated most harshly and under Roman law could be killed. Paul noted that Philemon was having Onesimus come back to him as more than a slave but as a brother in Christ and fellow believer. If you want "real Pilates" and real results, see Belkis on Maui!!!September 28, 2008~ Jessica Keith, Owner, Aloha Pilates  ?worked directly with Belkis at Real Pilates Maui????                                                                                                                           Belkis is a wonderful teacher with an incredible amount of knowledge.
Since it was quite possible that Onesimus had wronged Philemon and was indebted to Philemon for what he had stolen, Paul even offered to have Philemon charge the debt to him so that Paul might repay him. In offering to repay Philemon for Onesimus' indebtedness, Paul reminded Philemon that he owed him his very life, for it appears that in some way as a result of Paul's gospel ministry Philemon had become a believer in Christ the Savior. Belkis prepared me before I went to receive my training to get certified in Joseph Pilates.


In the course of his letter Paul hinted that he would very much like to have Onesimus back with him in Rome.
Her presence, her knowledge of the body and Pilates, and her figure, speaks for the exquisite power of Pilates. I am amazed by her brilliance and sharpness in "seeing" the tiny subleties of her clients form and dysfunction.
The transformation that takes place under the consistent care, and training with Belkis will astound you. She is compassionate, gentle, and exudes inner and outer strength and confidence, and that supports her clients in feeling special and safe. Belkis has made a huge impact on many peoples lives, especially mine, sincerely assisting them in becoming stronger, sleeker, healthier and happier.
She is one of a kind, a true master of her craft!Respectfully yours,                                                        ~ Rose Singarella                                                                                                                            ? ?I have worked with Belkis for six years since I came to Maui in 2005. I also studied while I was in UK for four years until 2005.I started Pilates  on the East Coast with New York  (Romana) trained teachers in NJ and then in Bermuda with a studio also with NY trained teachers and who brought inother instructors for short term assignments  from all over the USA and Canada during the four years I lived there. An automobile may be filled with enough fuel to drive a long distance, but it wona€™tA go anywhere until someone puts the key into the ignition and then turns the key. In the process, I experienced many different outlooks on the development of Pilates methodology in recent years.In my opinion, Belkis has all the elements of a first class instructor. Besides teaching "core" Pilates, she has the empathy in my case to understand the failings of a 70 year old body and the understanding to make the classes fun and instructive on a long term basis. She knows the body well and she keeps                                        a sharp eye on your movements to make sure you get the best results. Even though Goda€™s Word says I have a sound mind, I continually feelA like I dona€™t have control of my thought life. And in spite of the fact the Bible says God has blessedA me with gifts and talents, I feel like a dope who has nothing to offer to this world.
But for that potential in you to be released, you have to hold the right key in yourA hand.A Furthermore, it isna€™t enough for you to just possess the key. You have to put that key into theA a€?ignitiona€? and turn it so the latent potential that resides inside you will be ignited.
This is a person so sure of his information that when he speaks, he does so with confidence and boldness. You should study, read, listen to teaching material a€” inA other words, you should use every available resource to discover what Goda€™s Word says youa€™ve beenA given in Jesus Christ. The moment you open your mouth and start confessing the good things that are in you by Jesus Christ, a supernatural connection is made between your faith and allA that Jesus has deposited inside you.
At that moment, the gifts and treasures God has placed insideA you become supernaturally activated.
Instead of speaking what God says about them, they ridicule themselves, put themselves down, and speak badly of themselves. By acknowledging the basic truths of what you have been given in Jesus, you will release so much divine energy that it will radically transform your life.
She studied at Joe Pilates' original studio with teachers directly in his lineage, and thus she can offer both the classic workouts to your level of intensity, or do sensitive, individually-tailored rehab work.
When I hear my own words, even I can tell ita€™s wrong for me to speak so lowly about myself. Forgive me for speaking so wrongly and for allowing myself to remain imprisoned in self-defeat. I am truly repentant for theseactions, and I ask You to forgive me and to give me the power to change my behavior. I agree with all that Goda€™s Word declares me to be, and I speak these truths about myself. Every dayA Iam getting more positive and more faith-filled, and my mouth is speaking what God says about me. Do you speak well of yourself, or do you find that you constantly criticize yourself and continually point out all your flaws? If you were to ask your friends what they hear you saying about yourself, would they say you speak positively or negatively?A 2. What changes do you need to make in your life in order to change your confessions about yourself? Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf.
