Kelly Hale is one of my favorite resources for all things integration and gut health. In this conversation, we discussed so many simple and effective strategies to use to improve your digestive health and movement practices, both as humans and . We also dove deep into the subject of elimination! Kelly is an Occupational Therapist , Mind Body Integration Specialist, and Gut Health coach! Kelly brings a refreshing mix of experience and insight, as she combines rehab, holistic healing and movement science. She is continually fascinated by the body’s innate ability to heal through movement. Her work is sought out for her unique, synergistic approach that goes beyond the diagnosis and functional deficits to examine the true root causes such as “tripped-up” reflexes, cranial-sacral system disruption, and an un-integrated nervous system. This work has inspired her to create Innate Connections a course for rehab and movement professionals. She opened the first Holistic Rehab and Pilates practice in metro Detroit in 2001. Kelly has enjoyed mentoring and educating many professionals through the years clinically and presenting at various conferences such as PMA, Pilates on Tour Rehab Summit, Rehab Conferences and more. She has had the joy of sharing Inspiring presentations in corporations and keynoting at health care conferences. She was a Principal Educator for Polestar for 11 years, and currently teaches courses for The Center for Women’s Fitness. Kelly holds numerous certifications in Pilates and unique modalities such as Brain Gym and Body Ecology.

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!

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.

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.
