Thank you for the road you paved for all of us in the Pilates profession, Mari. You are greatly missed.

    Ep. 124 | Kelly Hale; Digestion, Integration and That 4-Letter Word

    Ep. 124 | Kelly Hale; Digestion, Integration and That 4-Letter Word

    Kelly Hale is one of my favorite resources for all things integration and gut health. In this conversation, we discussed so many simple and effective strategies to use to improve your digestive health and movement practices, both as humans and . We also dove deep into the subject of elimination! Kelly is an Occupational Therapist , Mind Body Integration Specialist, and Gut Health coach! Kelly brings a refreshing mix of experience and insight, as she combines rehab, holistic healing and movement science. She is continually fascinated by the body’s innate ability to heal through movement. Her work is sought out for her unique, synergistic approach that goes beyond the diagnosis and functional deficits to examine the true root causes such as “tripped-up” reflexes, cranial-sacral system disruption, and an un-integrated nervous system. This work has inspired her to create Innate Connections a course for rehab and movement professionals. She opened the first Holistic Rehab and Pilates practice in metro Detroit in 2001. Kelly has enjoyed mentoring and educating many professionals through the years clinically and presenting at various conferences such as PMA, Pilates on Tour Rehab Summit, Rehab Conferences and more. She has had the joy of sharing Inspiring presentations in corporations and keynoting at health care conferences. She was a Principal Educator for Polestar for 11 years, and currently teaches courses for The Center for Women’s Fitness. Kelly holds numerous certifications in Pilates and unique modalities such as Brain Gym and Body Ecology.

    Ep 123. | Lily Matson; A New Teacher's Paradigm

    Ep 123. | Lily Matson; A New Teacher's Paradigm

    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!

Worth a listen

Jenna manages to open up a dialogue to help navigate teachers of Pilates through all that it encompasses. Certainly worth a listen 🙋🏼

Too long

Jenna does some great interviews with some fabulous Pilates professionals. I do find that the intro part of the podcast too drawn out - it often goes on for over 20 minutes - and by the time the interview starts my commute is almost over!

Mumma loz!! ,

This is a Pilates Industry critical podcast!

Whether you listen to this to learn, glean from industry leaders, or part time therapy and for a few laughs ...you will always love this podcast and it will become a highlight of your week!!!
