Happy Thankgiving to our US listeners. This week is a replay of one of our favorite BONUS episodes from 2017. It's our Listenerpaloooza! We'll hear our listener's answers to our "questions of the week!" Topics like firing clients, raising prices and non-pilates conversations in a session are at the top of the list. We even have our very first CLIENT RANT! It was so interesting to go back and hear the show from over a year ago. Please excuse the overuse of the phrase "guys" - I've since shifted much of my language to be more inclusive. SO much has changed, and yet, I still enjoy a good musical parody. Enjoy a flashback to my musical stylings and just picture me blushing furiously as I listen to the playback of this episode. We'll be back on track with an all-new episode next week!

This week, Jenna gives a recap of the Live Life Motherhood Conference.
Her guest is Ken Gilbert, MA, is a Somatic Educator and Theatre Artist. Ken has practiced Body Contrology since 1994 to support his desire to be fully expressive through his body. Ken brings a multi-faceted, evolved perspective to his Pilates practice in his program of “Integrating Pilates” based on the fundamentals inherent of the work of Joseph H. Pilates, The Ron Fletcher Work™, and Nia® (Movement arts fitness, training, and lifestyle). Ken is also a Visiting Instructor on Pilates Anytime.
Ken's words: "My work as a Pilates Teacher can be intense for the client as I am "client-based" (rather than material or program based) in the work that I do with each individual."
In this episode, Jenna and Ken dive deep into the realms of integrated movement, pilates, dance and life!
