Joan’s journey…..

“Over the past 4 years I have had 2 hip replacements where Dawn has given me much encouragement for a full recovery. She adapted some of the exercises to my specific needs at the time. Both pre and post operative, I’ve had to use a chair to enable me to reach the floor which has been frustrating. However Dawn gave me a beneficial  one to one session followed up later by class situations. The once temporary inconvenience, has now resorted in full mobility! Thanks Dawn.” (JT)

Pilates history

Tonight I was invited to give a talk and slideshow on Pilates and its history, to the lovely ladies of Staunton on arrow WI.  I love the opportunity to talk about this inspiring man..it gives my work context, roots, foundations and connection to a movement system 100 years old.

It’s possible these days to qualify to teach pilates  in just 2 weekends, without having to learn ANYTHING of the man who invented it or his philosophies on the human mind, body and spirit. However, having some wider knowledge , gives meaning and depth to teaching and makes pilates more than just a series of exercises but part of a continual , evolving, movement experience rooted in time.

My next talk is to Eye WI on April 18th maybe see you there.
