Jay Grimes leads a group of Pilates enthusiasts and instructors through the mat work as it was taught to him by Joseph Pilates. All the while sharing gems about how the mat was performed and how it has changed over time, Jay applies the work to the needs of the diverse bodies in the room. Work out along with his students and you too can benefit from Jay’s keen eye, sense of humor and his common sense approach that comes from knowing the work in his own body as well as a lifetime of experience teaching it. You can find the apparatus used in this workshop at: Gratz Pilates. Filmed at the Arizona Classical Pilates Conference 2012, organized by The Pilates Core.
