Learn to Feel Your Body in Space

Being able to feel and control how we are carrying and moving our bodies in space is the essence foundation to the practice of Pilates. Joseph originally called this practice "Controlology" for just this reason. In this course, we will explore all that this entails and practice the exercises with full awareness.

Learn to Let Go of Expectations

All too often we set expectations that end up limiting us significantly. What we can or can not do is rooted in the setting we make in our minds. Come to Pilates with curiosity and prepare to go beyond your expectations of what you can or can not do.

See the World in a New Way

When our spines become more flexible and strong, our energy changes dramatically...most especially our perspectives and mind-set. Joseph designed this discipline combining his training from multiple modalities including yoga. Just like yoga (the yoking of the mind and body), he intended this practice to be focused on the entire health of his students...nit just muscles in the body. As our perspective changes and our energy improves, we start to see our wellbeing in a whole new, fresh way. we begin to feel more alive than we ever thought we could!
