Did you miss us?
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.
