One of the greatest challenges in Pilates involves feeling it in our bodies. It's easy to get carried away with the exercises, rules, orders and transitions. In this workshop, Clare re-focuses on what it means to move the "Pilates way" and translates Pilates vocabulary and cues into simple terms that the mind and body can understand. She shares tips on how to build essential mind-body connections needed for more intelligent movement, and how to convey this to clients across all levels and types of physical experience. Visit Clare at Progressive Bodyworks and explore her new program for studio owners Pilates Avatar.

    thanks for this Claire. You’ve summed it up nicely and these cues will certainly help when working with clients. I like the sitting example, having just experienced it in an office today. It’s a great technique to practice in between getting up, and sitting for long hours. So easy for many people working all day to be slumped over their chair, no wonder there are many cases of backache. I like how you think Claire. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you, Clare- you have a wonderful gift of being able to have people experience the feeling of movement. So often, I would hear different teachers say the same words, but I wasn’t clear on what they meant. Thank you, as always, you gave me a lot to practice and to pay attention to. I enjoy seeing you here on pilatesology and am always happy to see a new workout from you.
