It's our first bonus of Season 3!  In this special episode, Jenna discusses her motivations for selling her studio.  We hear from a special caller who is going through the same thing and Jenna sits down with the new owner of her studio, Erin Johnson.  The two get candid about the process, complete with the anxiety they went through, how they chose to see this as a collaboration rather than just a transaction and share advice for anyone who may be considering selling or buying a Pilates studio.

This week Jenna dives into the question "Is The Current Model Of The Pilates Studio Actually Working For Us?" with an "Analogy Menagerie!" She also interviews innovator, educator and thought leader, Heather Vaughan Southard, about her work with children and adults and the intention to invite their movement practice to transcend the exercises into self-concept, socioemotional development and healing from trauma.  It's a deep conversation, but one that will give you insight on dealing with client roadblocks, boundaries and also the potential of how deep your work can touch someone's life.
