This week we talk about the value of taking a movement sabbatical and the strategies to get back online with your practice.  Jenna finally answers the question "How do you do it all?" and we get down and dirty with the biopsychosocial model of physical therapy with physio, Nick Hannah.  The conversation covers the importance of client empowerment, updated relevant research and the stories behind Nick's popular instagram feed, @hannahmoves.  OH - and there's also a little bit about the pelvic floor :).

This is an extra-unfiltered bonus episode with Teresa Ellis of Pilates Barre & Jams. She and Jenna have a raw and honest conversation that started with a tone-deaf social media post and led to a beautiful conversation that was tough, but provided much opportunity for listening and learning. They cover topics from identity, to race, to privilege, to gender, to body image, to the Pilates/fitness industry, and more. This is a conversation not to miss!!

We have a special Bonus Episode treat for you! In Episode 49, Jenna shared about how a post from Anula Maiberg had caused a triggered reaction.  Jenna chose to own the trigger, call Anula and ask if it was ok to speak about it on that episode. In this episode, you get to hear the follow up conversation that touches on owning our reactions, having progressive and respectful conversations and agreeing to disagree.  It's a juicy bonus between friends that celebrates individual expression and learning from each other.

In the Season 5 Finale, we pay tribute to the legendary Mari Winsor! From those who have never met Mari to a few who were close to her, Pilates Professionals share their stories of how Mari's work has impacted their lives.  Thanks to the miracle of technology, Jenna was able to ask a number of questions that Mari answered via email.  Enjoy this tribute to a woman who forged the way for so many of us to do what we love to do for our career!

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.
