This is your chance to see the Master in action! This prize, a 30 minute lesson won at the 2015 Classical Pilates Convention in Pisa, Italy, is a great example of what you could expect from your own private lesson with Jay. In this session Jay clearly demonstrates how he is a strong believer in observation over explanation. Notice Jay's preference for using hands over words in all forms of communication with his student - including queuing, positioning, deepening etc. Watch Jay's gaze and make note of his main points of observation and the subsequent corrections as his student moves through individual exercises - you'll learn a lot about how to teach your own clients. Pay attention to the timing of his cues, and notice how Jay selectively corrects some imperfections and ignores others in order to preserve movement. All clients are unique and as teachers it's our job to learn about them in order to teach them. Find out more about working with Jay Grimes at www.VintagePilates.com. Our gratitude goes to Convention Host Gloria Gasperi, visit her at Studio Pilates di Gloria Gasperi for info on future events.

    When the opportunity presents on Pilatesology, I always observe very carefully everywhere that Jay Grimes uses his hands on a Body. It tells me volumes.
    Such a gracious host and deals so nicely with any eventuality.
    Charming indeed.

    Oh my god, thank you! It is better than a workshop ! Jay is teaching a client not a teacher, usually we see him to teach teacher or his historic clients, never before… I didn’t remember about this lesson, really thank you pilatesology …it is a reformer teacher training ….grandi ragazzo bravi
