This week we welcome Mary Peacock to the pod.  After years of weight training and pursuing the traditional fitness path, Mary found that she was just not doing her body justice. In 1999, she began dabbling in Pilates and a year later was studying in studios across the U.S. with trainers from all over the world. Mary trained for over a decade under Romana Kryzanowska, her daughter Sari, and granddaughter, as well as Romana‚Äôs carefully selected Master Teachers and Teachers. She has also studied with Jay Grimes and Kathryn Ross-Nash.  As a teacher, Mary takes pride in obtaining and maintaining the Original Teachings of Joseph Pilates as it has been passed on to her from many teachers. 

In this interview, we get honest about ALL of the elements that we face as teachers in training, after training and then some.  You'll hear and maybe commiserate with us as we have a completely unfiltered conversation about our own experiences going through teacher training, our relationships with our mentors as well as our staff.

We continue with the recording from our LIVE event in New Jersey this week.  In this episode, we hear from the audience members, both teachers and enthusiasts, and even some former guests! We're joined by longtime podcast sponsor and friend, Ellen Atkins to hear her story of how she brought her business, "The Suburban Monk" to life.  We also discuss the spirit aspect of the mind/body/spirit trifecta with former guest, Raven Marderosian of Shivaya Wellness.  

In the second part of the episode, we get honest with the members of the audience about the "Pilates into life" lessons we teach, what we fear in teaching, and what we wish people understood more about Pilates.  It's a rich discussion that will surely have you nodding your head in agreement as you listen.  

Big thanks again to Pure Pilates in New Jersey, as well as the LIVE event sponsors:

In Episode 87, we dive deep into the subject matter of our relationship with ourselves - in movement, in teaching, and in life with Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle. It's one that you will want to get the pen and paper out for and possibly the tissues, too.

Wendy is an international leader in embodied movement. Her "movement pedigree" includes working with top leaders in both the Pilates realm as well as somatics and structural integration.  The culmination of this rich background of work is a tapestry of truth in movement that is informed through curiosity, play, listening and of course, moving the body! 

In this episode, Jenna was fortunate enough to not only receive the gift of a conversation through the interview but also a full life treatment in the best of ways!

Huge gratitude to Wendy for this auditory gift. We know you will all receive so much from this episode!

It's PUP LIVE in New Jersey!!! We traveled to @purepilatesnj for a special @teach_from_the_heart_live and Pilates Unfiltered LIVE weekend! Jenna spoke to owner, Carol Crincoli about the ups and downs of owning a studio, making changes to the business model and launching a product to serve the Pilates Profession.

We also played an energetic game of "Never Have I Ever - Pilates Style!" and the conversation was so rich that we split the episode into two parts. Stay tuned for our next community episode where we hear from Suburban Monk founder, Ellen Atkins as well as former guests of the podcast, Raven Marderosian and Jeanne Reilly as well as future guest Tara Lynn Nunziata. The community also gets involved to talk about our struggles, fears and triumphs!
