This week we talk about moving away from discouragement and towards encouragement in our teaching and professional Pilates careers. Jenna references a lively discussion from the Pilates Unfiltered Facebook Forum - thank you to all contributors! We'll also hear from the fabulous Erika Quest about changing your movement practice to fit your needs, neuroplasticity, and the balancing act of being an international presenter. Special thanks to our sponsors: Pilates Anytime, Farm Girl Marketing.
In this episode we discuss bringing elements of fun into the process of making big changes and Jenna shares an "otherworldly" experience of channelling a message from Joseph Pilates through song (of course.) Our listener's are reminded that Pilates teachers are always watching - even in the drive-thru at Starbucks - and the conversation between Jenna and guests Sunni Almond and Tracy Maurstad look at the challenges, benefits and passion that they've received from returning to the classical work of the Pilates method by "Going More Joe."

Jenna is coming to you 'live' from Pilates Anytime in Santa Barbara this week. She gives you an insight into her before and after experience filming her new classes. Spoiler Alert: Cheryle makes an appearance! Our guest this week is another Pilates Unicorn - Tandy Gutierrez of Mat & Kitchen. This world traveller gives us her insight into the unique career she has built to support movers of all kinds! Thank you to our sponsors: Pilates Anytime, Farm Girl Marketing, Pilates Education Institute.
Let's talk empathy vs. compassion. Jenna gives her take on the nuanced differences. We hear a rant from an anonymous caller about something we ALL have been through - solidarity! Finally, we are joined by the one and only Amy Taylor Alpers for a rich and thoughtful conversation on the evolution of Pilates and encouragement for any/all teachers in their unique work!

Jenna talks to us about her thoughts on the story or identity we begin our day with and sings us a little ditty about the recently trending "Bromper." James Crader is on the show this week and he and Jenna dive into the depths of the differentiation between movement, exercise, Pilates, and so much more. If you love getting into the minutia of movement, this episode is for you! Thanks to our sponsors: Pilates Anytime, Pilates Metrics, Pilates Education Institute.
