Put your thinking caps on, because Kara Wily is about to give you a true Pilates-physics course! In this workshop, Kara explains how to apply the 1st, 2nd and 3rd class levers of your body to maximize your "Mechanical Advantage" - simply put, how to be efficient and effective with your movement. Your reward for suffering through flashbacks of Physics class is the secret to maximizing your body's power by turning it into a (near) frictionless machine! Visit Kara at: Kara Wily Pilates.

    It works! I opened a google doc on my computer. Go to Tools –> Voice Typing. It will open a micro phone. Tap the micro phone to start recording and then press play on the video. I put the workshop on my phone and played it into the microphone of the computer. I think pressing pause from time to time on the video will help the transcription be a little more clear. It is not perfect, but it opens up some options for you to watch as many videos as you wish. I hope this helps 🙂

    kikemarin–is there any way to send it through google docs ? It seems they have voice activation now, I am wondering if we played with it could we offer a transcript? I will give it a shot and play it from one device to the other and see what I come up with. Thank you very much for your interest.

    Yes, I think I thought these things but didn’t have names for the concepts, I called it playground math ;)) thank you Kara☀️

      I love the idea of playground math! Where did we all learn how fun physics can be- gravity, inertia and best of all fighting and mocking gravity! Fantastic.

    English subtitles work very well for many people than read English better than hearing and is wonderful for deaf peoples.
    all the best

    Very interesting workout
    Congratulations Kara
    But for no English people would be wonderful if we had the possibility of English subtitles. We would very grateful if pilates.ology included in your videos the before mentioned option of subtitles in English.

    Thank you very much.

      Hi kikemarin,
      We would like to offer subtitles for our videos but the process is very time consuming and expensive.
      Can you tell me what language you would like to see more of? Spanish? And what type of classes are the most important for you–workshops for teachers?
      Thank you!
