Very valuable and practical content

Stephen is a PT and Pilates connoisseur!!! I’ve been a PT for 10 years and have been ready to launch my career in a different direction through Pilates. Inspiration to do so has come in different ways but Stephen Dunn has put this amazing podcast together that not only offers practical information to help launch your own practice of Pilates but the motivation and support through interviews from the top PTs who are making it happen through their own successful businesses in PT and Pilates. Great to know that I’m not alone in our profession that has a passion for creating a niche in Pilates.
