This week we talk about how fortitude is the prelude for gaining strength. Our guest this week is Kyria Sabin Waugaman, Director of Fletcher Pilates International. She and Jenna reminisce about Ron Fletcher, discuss the evolution of professionalism in the industry, and about the moment you realize the universe has other plans for you.

Jenna talks about the power of words, the nocebo effect and references a viral post from future guest, Nick Hannah. She also interviews Pilates Professional Lucie Bécus about a viral blog post that she wrote about her experience with surviving an emotionally abusive marriage, moving and rebranding a studio, and working with the teacher or client in front of you.

This week we talk about Jenna's trip to the opera and how it brought a new lesson about judgement to the classroom of life (and Pilates.) We'll also hear from the man behind the photographs that many of us have hanging in our studios: Mr. Chuck Rapoport. We're going to take a trip back in time to that fateful day where he shot photos of Joseph Pilates in his natural habitat. We also have a rant from a caller who makes a hard choice to leave a studio where she feels gratified by the work, but not the paycheck.
