Re: What are the differences between teaching "Classical Pilates" versus the "Original Method"?

Hello Joao, I am so sorry for the delay. Family loss. Horrible year. Slowly returning to life and normalcy (whatever that is) Now I have apprentices!!! Something I avoided for such a long time but because I am leaving my studio -my wonderful colleague Mariska Barnard is taking over- I had to produce...

Re: What do you think about archival exercises?

Hello Paco, I am not thrilled about the question -I don't want to star a war- but I guess the person who made that pic already posted it online. I think she actually contacted me a while ago about teaching her online but maybe is not the same person since she said she also 'hated' social media. Ther...

Re: No equipment Pilates standing work

Hello Alain, Sorry for the previous post, it was a little 'catty'. Just a few days ago I was teaching those exercises -I always use some of the standing Pilates exercises before the group Mats and I always finish with the more advanced ones- and someone who joined the group was upset that I was doin...

Re: No equipment Pilates standing work

Hello Alain, There are many series standing. With and without equipment. Furthermore, every workout should finish standing. Whether you are doing the 'contraction' series, the punches, the jumps, the balances, the Arm Springs (referring to the equipment, not just arm exercises) series standing, or t...

Re: Practice over time

Hello Alain, There are a few questions, so I will go in stages. ----- Joseph did go through an evolution. His US evolution (he was over 40 when he travelled to the US) was more in the conceptual and fulfilling part of the method, what was to be achieved. More than keep adding/changing/deleting thing...

Re: Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

Polo Sentado. Coge una barra o palo. Preferiblemente uno más grueso. Los rodillos para pies funcionan, pero trabaja con los dos pies a la vez solo si es lo suficientemente ancho. Parte 1: - Enrolla el pie sobre la barra, con los dedos hacia abajo, y haz rodar el bastón a lo largo de la planta del pi...

Re: Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

Fuerza. Cuando un pie está rígido, suele ser también débil -lo que no se mueve no se ejercita...y lo que no se ejercita... Básicamente, lo que lo mantiene unido es la rigidez. Al principio es muy difícil aflojar el pie a causa de ella: se necesitarían músculos muy fuertes para poder doblar un pie ta...
