We all could use an enlightening episode right now!  Lily Matson first reached out to me to see if I would be interested in interviewing someone who was just completing her first year of teaching to explore this very sweet spot in a Pilates Teacher's journey.  I was a full YES! 

At the time of this interview, Lily was a newer Pilates Instructor in Portland, OR. with about 1 year of teaching under her belt.  Her relationship with Pilates started when she was in high school, watching Mari Winsor infomercials in her parents' basement over and over again. After years of organized sports, running and barre classes, she made her way back to mat Pilates. She took her first Reformer class at Cascadia Pilates in Portland and there was no turning back. She joined Cascadia Pilates as a member, completed my 450-hr Teacher Training in May 2019 and started to work as an instructor right away, quitting her full-time job in order to pursue this new career in health and wellness. It was a scary leap with lots of challenges, but one that she's so happy she made.

Lily, asked for some coaching in this interview and you know that I was willing to go there and I know that this perspective expanding conversation is exactly what you need to ignite your teaching with new energy for the weeks ahead!

I'm dropping in for a chat about how we can care for ourselves, our clients and our environments during this time of major stress and uncertainty. 

 

Thinking of all of you right now - You are doing a GREAT job - now let's get serious about the basics.

The conversation with Maggie Downie is full of "Teacher Talk!"  Working with clients with chronic pain, quality of movement, quality of teaching and whether or not Joseph Pilates would have a huge following on instagram today are covered in depth.  If you've ever asked yourself what really matters in your work, this interview will give you a lot of food for thought! 

Maggie Downie is the founder of Personal Euphoria, a fitness and wellness company, where she has been helping her clients reduce pain and keep moving since 2005. She co-founded PEEP’s in Motion, which offers Workshops for Wellness—programs designed to keep people moving and reduce pain. Maggie lives in a historic house in Connecticut and enjoys doing planks in different parts of the world, seeking adventures, climbing mountains, and eating chocolate. Maggie has walked on fire, swam in Jell-O which resulted in a viral video with over 42-million hits, and nearly summited Mt. Kilimanjaro. She has also trained under four of the Pilates Elders. Her book Keep Moving: Take Steps to Relieve Pain & Improve Your Life came out in October 2019.

Positivity has arrived JUST IN TIME. Hilary Opheim is a bright light in the Pilates world who has an outlook that is like a breath of fresh air in a field that can sometimes be riddled with critique. 

Hilary has been teaching over 25 years and is known for her positive and supportive style of teaching not only clients but, for those she Mentors and go through her Training Program. Over her Pilates career she has studied with many and in 2017 She completed the 360 Program with Benjamin Degenhardt and in 2019 Graduated the Heritage Training with Cara Reeser. She has presented at the PMA Conference and gives workshops taking her unique style to studios to share her passion for the work of Joseph Pilates.

"I feel that Pilates is a journey and for me it is one of never-ending exploring, learning, sharing and community. My continued learning from those that have come before me helps me give Teachers understanding. confidence and community"

Looking at the bright side and seeing the best has always been who I am and this has always been present for me in my teaching. My purpose is to help teachers find that joyful, confident and assured teacher that they want to be.

We're joined by Mimosa Gordon this week to dive into a rich conversation about teaching process, cueing skills, and seeing the body in front of you. Mimosa and I explore the "yes, and" element to having a conversation that holds multiple points of view - something that is not always available in the realm of discussing Pilates.

We're BAAAACCCKKKK! And I can't think of a better, more energetic way to enter into a new year than with the beautiful spirit of Marimba Gold-Watts. This conversation spans all of the teaching topics from working with unmotivated clients to feeling empowered to get creative with your teaching to the perils of competition in the dance world vs social media.
