    Wow! I can’t wait to implement all of these fantastic movements with clients. So much to learn from Jack! Funny man!

    Jack, I think I want to host you next at Studio S Pilates….I mean, I think you far outshine Alisa on some these moves, I can see how much she really needs to get
    your Discovery Method into her body. Until that time occurs though, what do you charge per workshop hour and how quickly do you think we can get you booked in.
    I really want to learn the Pedipole stuff at least ;))
