This week we talk to Dr. Suzanne Martin. Dr. Suzanne Martin’s interest lies in the field of human movement and potential, specializing in special populations of spinal asymmetry, cancer, feet, and performing arts. A doctor of physical therapy, an exercise physiologist and a gold-certified Pilates expert, she is an international presenter, coach, and mentor, as well as an award-winning author and video producer. Dr. Martin’s aesthetic for movement started in the visual arts and dance. With over 40 years of teaching experience, she blends art and science into her writing and instruction from the fine arts, health and movement fields. Look for her new Handspring Publishers book, Spinal Asymmetry and Scoliosis; Movement and Function Solutions for the Spine, Ribcage, and Pelvis.

This conversation is a rich exploration of moving beyond the structure to see where the function lies!

This week, Jenna shares a big announcement about future podcasting endeavors.  We learn about how the Bio Psychosocial model of care for clinicians can also inform our teaching practice and we even have a listener rant for all of the "solopreneurs" out there in the community. The episode concludes with a Lion-King-inspired #jennagem about storytelling and the value of multiple voices within the stories we tell about our work.

We're joined this week by Pilates Pro, LaBriece Ochsner for a diverse conversation about teaching, moving and culture. LaBriece, as unique as her name symbolizes, is identified by her Pilates clients as a role model for healthy living.  She approaches teaching with a full heart, extraordinary insight and precise attention to detail that not just personalizes your exercise experience but allows you to achieve your full potential.  After studying at the University of California, San Diego where she was a top student, competitive rower, and modern dancer, LaBriece ran a successful Pilates studio outside of metropolitan Phoenix for a decade while raising her three children. Now residing in Switzerland, she leads the Balanced Body Authorized Training Center for German-speaking Switzerland in her comprehensive Pilates Studio.

This interview evolved from Pilates-talk between teachers to a beautiful journey through the many ways we communicate through language, cueing, motivating factors and cultures. LaBriece holds a wealth of inspiring information that is valuable to teachers of all traditions.

In Episode 101, we speak to @taralynpilates about her love for connecting with humans through movement. Her work developed from a classical pedigree in NYC and has spanned a spectrum of clientele. Tara-Lyn’s passion is teaching Pilates with a purpose. That purpose always depends on the clients’ needs and what journey they are on. The common purpose is to help clients find the power they have inside themselves through movement, purposeful thought, and intention. Tara-lyn works with the general population in her studio and her work extends into working with teens to improve their relationship with their bodies, as well as through special programming for breast cancer survivors. We can't wait for you to listen in to this rich conversation!

If you've ever wondered about your relationship with alcohol, this episode is a must listen. Katie Tomaszewski and Jenna dive into a deep conversation surrounding sobriety and being "sober curious," a new-ish term coined by author, Ruby Warrington.

Katie is a seasoned Pilates Pro, who found herself questioning her own relationship with alcohol after some life changes. Today, she runs a group called "Drynamics" that helps others go through this process of investigation with support. This episode is for everyone as it brings up the questions of our motivations for imbibing as well as for the experiences we wish to have in our lives. Thank you, Katie for this meaningful conversation!

Conversations where hands are thrown up in the air, tears are shed, snorts of laughter are abundant and the connection is strong are my reason for podcasting. My conversation with Kelly Kane was more like a rebirth of purpose and reaffirmed why I started Pilates Unfiltered.

Kelly Kane studied Pilates with Romana Krazanaska & Hila Paldi, completing her certification with The Pilates Institute. She has studied BodyMind Centering™, Continuum Movement™, Iyengar Yoga, and has done extensive Crossfit training. She attended Massage School at the Florida School of Massage and her manual therapy repertoire includes Structural Integration™, CranioSacral Therapy™ and Visceral Manipulation. She further developed her perceptual skills through three years of human cadaver dissection. 

Today, Kelly directs the Kane School of Core Integration, which is the training program she originated in New York City. but currently resides in Rochester, Vermont where she teaches Pilates on her 57 acre farm and at Biscuit Hill Pilates in Woodstock, Vermont.

This week's episode is a must-listen for all teachers of movement.  Beth is a Pilates pro who works within the world of academia, teaching university-level movement, health education, and Pilates classes and coordinating the Mind-Body Fitness programs at the Auraria campus in Denver, Co.  She works in collaboration with the LGBTQ Student Resource Center and the Phoenix Center at Auraria, an office dedicated to assisting people who experience Interpersonal Violence.  Because of the unique nature of the environment she teaches in, Beth has evolved her approach to teaching Pilates to be both inclusive and trauma-informed.

My interview with Beth Sandlin is full of rich and relevant content that will help teachers understand how to better work with humans in general, but also offers true strategies to work with clients who have experienced trauma within your scope of practice.  Human connection can be complicated and having resources to gain perspective is one of the options we have to continue to grow our skills as teachers of movement.  I am so thrilled to have Beth as not only a guest but as an important resource in the Pilates Profession.

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’s 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.

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!
