workshop description

This workshop encourages you to honor your roots and what you've learned to find the common truths that represent the heart of Pilates. We will step away from our schooling and into an environment of exploration into the work of Joe Pilates. This process will be an important step in helping you come to your own conclusions about Pilates so that you can develop your unique voice as a teacher.
