Baby boomers are aging and for many Pilates teachers they are the largest population in the studio. As a member of this generation herself, Mari Winsor is keenly aware of the needs of seniors and wants to help teachers understand how to work with them. In this workshop, she humorously shares everything from her own repertoire of exercises that are great for older folks, to thoughts on how to make clients in their twilight years feel good about their bodies. Filmed at the 2013 Arizona Classical Pilates Conference – to learn about upcoming workshops like this one please visit The Pilates Core.

    HOLY MOLY Mari, Timing is everything. I have a brand new client , 80 years old with kyphosis. She is going to really benefit from what I have just studied from this video of yours. We thank you immensely . I can’t wait to see her again tomorrow .Being a baby boomer myself I understand the challenges that can occur.
    Looking forward to seeing you again in Chicago at Dana’s seminar. Hugs

    What a GEM!
    Mari, thank you for your humor and relaxed delivery of all that great info!! I was personally elated to see I am not the only” Bad Gal”, putting the Spine Corrector on the Caddilac! I did that once in a Power Pilates Studio and once in a Romana Studio ( for an odler client who could not lower down to the raised Mat) Boy did a get whipped for that. I just never seem to fit in no matter where I teach. I am so tired of Ego’s getting in the way of helping people. If I ever on a studio I suppose I will name it Maverick Pilates.
    I look forward to one day having the honor of taking a workshop , or studing with you.
    I never want to stop being a student, as long as I am a teacher. I feel blessed and humble to touch lives through Pilates Movement!
    Gratefully, Sue

    Fantastic insights about touch when dealing with clients. That alone could be a whole video 🙂

    Thank you Mari! It’s nice to hear all this information put together. I took notes as I watched and now have my notes to refer to when I need something different than what I usually do with my older clients.
