Jay begins this workshop by describing his own memories of the way that Joe Pilates taught beginners his method. He shares important insights on how to approach a first time client, what to include or leave out of a lesson, and how to continue on a path to success for that client's personal goals. While taking questions, he has teachers demonstrate what they do with beginners and offers advice on teaching technique and much more. Learn about working with Jay Grimes at www.VintagePilates.com. Our thanks go to Murat Berkin and his Classical Pilates Conference Istanbul where this was filmed.
