Having learned to teach in the original 'Studio for Body Contrology' as Joe Pilates called it, Jay Grimes knows what the Rowing series on the Reformer should look like. As Clara Pilates said, you want to “squeeze the juice out of it,” but what Jay sees demonstrated by many of those new to the work is, well…, no juice at all. To help shed some light on what’s missing, Jay takes his student Ken Heizman through the series offering his techniques for getting more out of it. Jay then demonstrates how Mr. Pilates taught him to break the exercises down for a beginner. For those who are more delicate due to injury or weakness, Jay also shows how to teach these exercises on the Arm Chair because it is more supportive, uses lighter springs and allows for better access for the Instructor. This is an absolutely invaluable class for anyone looking to improve their teaching or technique in the Rowing Series. Filmed at Vintage Pilates, West Los Angeles, CA.
