    Anna Shaffer ~ Joe Pilates student/First Generation Pilates teacher

    Anna Shaffer ~ Joe Pilates student/First Generation Pilates teacher

    As we close Season 5, it's only fitting that we end with the student who studied with Joe Pilates the longest, Anna Shaffer. As Anna says, proper posture or “proper body alignment” as Joe reminded her throughout her studies, gives you confidence and elegance both physically and psychologically.  Anna shares more memories of her time with Joe Pilates.

    Paula Mourin ~ Pilates Ministry

    Paula Mourin ~ Pilates Ministry

    This is a beautiful account of how Joe’s work has helped to heal the body, mind and soul. Today’s episode is a touching one. It involves the church, the prison system and a woman who took her own suffering and discovered how the power of Pilates could save her and others. My guest is Paula M, a new Pilates teacher who offers classes for church members and at a women’s local detention center. Paula refers to these classes as her Pilates ministry and her goal is to bring out the beauty in the broken. What a full circle of Joe’s life. He developed his method while incarcerated and all of these decades later, his work has returned to those who need it the most.

    Sarah King ~ The ELDOA method

    Sarah King ~ The ELDOA method

    Have you heard of a Method called ELDOA? This modality was created by world-renowned osteopath, Guy Voyer who designed it to help bring the body into balance and to heal the spine. Our guest today, Sarah King is a Pilates teacher who teaches Guy Voyer's work  to classical Pilates teachers in Berlin, Germany. Sarah has a manual therapy background so it’s no wonder she was drawn to another type of modality that has hints of yoga but also offers it within an osteopathic framework.

    Gil Hedley ~ The Integral Anatomy experience

    Gil Hedley ~ The Integral Anatomy experience

    Every Monday morning while having my coffee in bed, I log on to my Youtube account and listen and watch Gil Hedley and his Monday morning anatomy offering. Two human forms he respectfully refers to as Anna and Zee, help him share his vast anatomy knowledge. So whether it’s a joint in the body, the heart and lung relationship or the nervous system, Gil’s compassion, wisdom and humor fills my morning. In case you haven’t heard of my guest, Gil Hedley - he is the creator of Integral Anatomy, an online educational platform. For the last 29 years through Hands-On Human Dissection Workshops in the laboratory, worldwide lecture presentations, and online events, Gil has encouraged thousands of fellow "somanauts" to appreciate, explore, and embody the wonders of the human form.

Happy to hear your voice

I truly enjoy your podcast and noticed your absence. Your podcast has provided me with education on parts of the pilates world I did not know.
Thanks for sharing your story about having covid. Your story will help wellness providers understand the physical, emotional, and mental effect that the covid virus can have on the body.
