This class on the Pilates Mat work is directed at Pilates instructors who are looking to enter Vintage Pilates’ teachers program: The Work, led by First Generation Teacher Jay Grimes. In this assessment, Sandy Shimoda covers the exercises and skills that are required for entrance into the program. She teaches the session as she would lead an actual assessment, watching to see that her students know how to set up, how to practice the exercises, and how they might adjust the exercise for their own body. She also offers notes on what she is looking for in an assessment, for instance, where a movement originates or what she wants to see in a body as it works.
