Pilates with Pylades Video and Free Signed Poster Contest!

[This is a guest-post from Olga Kwak, Digital Marketing Co-ordinator]

Under a warm September sky, a Greek warrior sought serenity…

This week, we asked tenor Joseph Kaiser to join us for a Pilates class at St. James Park in the heart of downtown Toronto. Joseph is playing Pylades in our season-opener Iphigenia in Tauris from Sept. 22 to Oct. 15, 2011. What better way to celebrate the start of an epic adventure than with a little exercise? Even Greek warriors have to work their cores! Watch the Pilates with Pylades video and scroll through our exclusive pictures.

We had a great time at St. James Park at our Pilates class and we thank Joseph Kaiser for participating. We gave away a free pair of tickets to Iphigenia in Tauris to a lucky participant and a free personal Pilates class with our instructor Lolli to another participant. Without further ado, our Pilates with Pylades video!

Shots from the event:

Tough workout!

Now that you've seen the video, we've got a very special treat for you – comment on the blog today to win a copy of this Pilates with Pylades poster signed by Joseph Kaiser! To receive a copy of the poster, leave a comment with your favourite fall outdoor activity before 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011. Let's make it Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2011. I suspect quite a few of our readers are weekday readers. So if you'd still like to leave a comment, please do!

Let me start off by telling you mine: I love to go hiking up north when the leaves start to change colour. It's just cool enough that I don't get over-heated on the trail, but I don't have to wear a million layers either. Plus, the colours of the leaves are just brilliant. 

So what's your favourite fall activity? Leave a message all weekend long and we'll choose a comment on Monday morning. Remember to return to Parlando to find out who the winner is. We'll announce it on Twitter and Facebook, but we want you to return so you can send us your details!
