What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I have a deep love and passion for music. I started singing and playing piano at the age of 4, and later got my Bachelor’s Degree in Music right here in Toronto. In fact up until about 2 and a half years ago I still had dreams of singing for a living. I had always been interested in movement of the body as a form of expression too, so when I found Pilates and decided to make it my career it was important to me to integrate the two worlds. The name ‘Fine Tune Pilates’ certainly pertains to tweaking movements and getting the most out of the exercises, but it’s also a play on words because I love to play good tunes in my classes and videos! Music is still a huge part of my life, and I believe it has the power to inspire movement so much. So here’s a brand new feature here on ‘My Favorite Things Monday,’ where I let you in on some of my favorite music of the moment!
This week, I’ve got some sultry R&B for you. R&B is one of my favorite genres, not just because I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s, but because it’s music is so emotive, passionate, and it’s like you can feel every note. I’ll admit good R&B was scarce for a minute there, but over the past few years it’s been making a solid come back. Lately I’ve been listening to this song non stop so I hope you enjoy, here’s Vol. 2 of 3 from Miguel’s new EP Art Dealer Chic. Because what makes you want to move more than a sexy guy singing his heart out!
