    Nancy Chin ~ Owner, Pilates Avenue Los Gatos, Full hip replacement

    Nancy Chin ~ Owner, Pilates Avenue Los Gatos, Full hip replacement

    Our guest today is Nancy Chin, owner of Pilates Avenue Los Gatos in the city of Los Gatos, California. She is a graduate of the Vintage Pilates program called, The Work. Last summer, Nancy had a life changing experience that impacted her own Pilates practice and gave her an entirely new understanding of the body - especially, the pelvic region. After many years of dealing with an extremely painful hip, Nancy decided to have her hip replaced. I’m not sure if there are statistics that show the number of Pilates instructors who have hip replacements, but I thought Nancy would be the perfect person to take us through the surgery, the post surgical phase and if the Pilates method had assisted in recovering her balance, strength and mobility.

    Christina Gadar ~ Open Access Pilates Archives

    Christina Gadar ~ Open Access Pilates Archives

    If someone wants to learn the Pilates method, he or she most likely will sign up for a classical or modern Pilates class. However, before there was classical or modern, there was just Joe’s method that he called Contrology, but for some his work is also referred to as “Archival Pilates.” This term means that Joe’s exercises are taught and practiced exactly as he documented and demonstrated. But does anyone “own” these archival exercises? Well, no, they do not. If someone were to search out a studio that offers archival Pilates lessons taught on replicas of Joe’s apparatus designs, they might find a Pilates teacher like Christina Gadar, our guest today. 
    Christina is a Second generation Pilates instructor who not only teaches Joe’s work at her own space, Gadar Pilates in Sarasota, Florida, but after almost two years of research has created an online educational platform called, Open Access Pilates Archives. It’s her mission to introduce Joe’s original work to Pilates teachers and enthusiasts by demonstrating the archival method and she also includes her own notations. Christina is the author of six books and the creator of the Pilates Animals Workout for children.

    Gordon Firemark ~ Copyright Attorney

    Gordon Firemark ~ Copyright Attorney

    As many of you know, there is an aspect of the Pilates industry that involves law suits about intellectual property, copyrights, trademarks, patents and public domain. I thought it important for all of us to learn about these legal terms because so many of us teach online as well as in person and may not be aware of how to protect ourselves. 

    With us today is attorney, Gordon Firemark, known in the podcast world as the Podcast Lawyer. Gordon has been practicing Entertainment law since 1992. His practice covers copyrights, trademarks, business transactions, and corporate matters for clients in media and entertainment. In addition to a busy law practice, he teaches Entertainment Law at  Columbia College Hollywood, Intellectual Property and Media Law at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and Contract law at Pepperdine Law School.

    Alison Jones ~ Curator, Knockaloe Visitor Center, Isle of Man

    Alison Jones ~ Curator, Knockaloe Visitor Center, Isle of Man

    When Joseph Pilates was interned at Camp Knockaloe on the Isle of Man during WWI, little could he imagine that over a century later, a museum would be built very near where he was interned. The Knockaloe Visitor Center took almost ten years from its concept to its grand opening in 2019. At the helm of this visionary project is our guest today, Alison Jones. Although we know that Joe Pilates was interned at Camp Knocklaoe, there is a larger story here and Alison is going to share it with us.

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.
