In this workshop, Jay Grimes shares his knowledge on how the three Pilates chairs were taught to him by Joe Pilates including the Arm Chair, Wunda Chair and High Chair. In Joe’s studio, the chairs were used as a way to give a body the extras it needed and that is how Jay works with them himself. He demonstrates a variety of uses for each chair, from using the Arm Chair for tight shoulders or teaching the Swakate, the High Chair for improving stability and strength, or practicing control on the Wunda Chair. Along the way, Jay tells what Joe did to get you to work the way he wanted. These glimpses into the original studio are wonderful lessons on their own and often provide a completely new understanding about how an exercise can be taught effectively.
