In my city of Edmonton, Alberta, the leaves have fallen which means but one thing - Winter is coming! For a long time.
Pilates and the practice of pilates remind me of what it is like to experience the different seasons. There is a time where the new student will be on the reformer and mat for what seems like forever, but, there will come a time where exercises from the other apparatus will be introduced to the body. Like the changing seasons, if we truly utilize ALL of Joe’s system the body will also experience change and new growth.
Completing THE WORK Teacher’s Program with Jay Grimes has shown me that in order for the body to truly come back into harmony with itself, meaning all parts working uniformly the work of Joseph Pilates must be practiced in its entirety.
How lucky am I to know the work of Joseph Pilates, as it was taught to me from the perspective of Jay Grimes and the teachers at VINTAGE PILATES, but even more grateful now with the knowledge and understanding that I must trust the method, choose from his system wisely, and spring will surely follow.
I dedicate this blog post to my beautiful Kuwaiti friend Noor who kept me going this past year.
Love you my dear pilates sister (and #GOT superfan)
