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!

I'm dropping in for a chat about how we can care for ourselves, our clients and our environments during this time of major stress and uncertainty. 

 

Thinking of all of you right now - You are doing a GREAT job - now let's get serious about the basics.

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.
