In this "pearl-clutching" episode of Pilates Unfiltered, we dive into a range of intriguing topics related to Pilates and the challenges faced by instructors and practitioners alike. From the struggle to find online resources for body anatomy conditions to the influence of social media platforms on the duration of Pilates classes, we navigate through insightful conversations and expert recommendations. Join us as we explore the benefits of classical Pilates, discuss teaching methodologies, and tackle the question of whether classical instructors have it easier.
