Get ready to fly! Your pilot for this session is Jean-Claude Nelson of Bluebird Pilates in Munich. Widely known for the stunning video clips he produces showcasing classical Pilates, Jean-Claude is an equally inspiring teacher. You’ll work rhythm, dynamics and flow in this quickly paced session that brings in many of Romana’s favorite variations for a whole lot of fun and sweat! Huge thanks to Gloria Gasperi and her Classical Pilates Convention Pisa (the first in Italy!) where this session was filmed. Please visit: Studio Pilates di Gloria Gasperi for information on her next convention and Pilates teacher training.

    Holy shit, what a swan! Thanks for this work out. My first time post surgery that I’m judging my Pilates practice versus my recovery! I have a little way to go, but this was a fun way to test myself. Thanks! Beautiful class.

    Wondering if Jean-Claude ever had the chance to meet Julian Littleford? I think Julian would have loved his work! Fabulous!

    It is a privilege and a pleasure to watch Jean-Claude Nelson articulate all the Pilates moves with his balletic body. Only after I watched the whole workout did I do the workout with him–without, of course, those moves my body can no longer handle. I was a dancer in my youth so I just loved having another “dance lesson”!

    Jean-Claude has just demonstrated that he is more than a great Pilates practitioner, but also a very educated and knowledgeable Pilates teacher that will inspire students for a long time to come.

      Dear Christina,
      I feel very flattered by your words and hope we will get the chance to meet, since I greatly admire your work.

    As a Mat Only person, may I thank you Alisa & Jack for the opportunity to see Jean-Claude Nelson doing an Advanced Mat practice.
    I have often studied the video clips you speak about in the introduction and admired his work.
    This Gentleman’s work rate, and dynamic approach, must surely add a Cardio fitness aspect to the Mat work, which is revealing, and apparent from the 100% effort he demonstrated.
    I hope we see more of his Mat abilities on Pilatesology.
    Truly an Outstanding Practitioner.

    • Jean-Claude Nelson Author

      Dear Joesmat, thank you for following my work.
      Indeed when performing the mat exercises in a quick pace with smooth transitions, keeping the precise execution, we do also benefit from a cardiovascular workout.
      Get your juices flowing 😉
