Genous to come ,

So many Gems!

Thank you James and Chantill for providing these wonderful discussions so that we may all benefit, grow and connect. I just listened to Episode 70 with Anna Hartman and gleened some wonderful golden nuggets and was reminded and encouraged that I am on a great path with my constantly curious and evolving journey of teaching movement. I look forward to making a point to catching up on the ones I have missed!

Great for students

It took a few episodes to get accustomed to the style of this podcast. I started listening to learn more about the theory of Pilates and learned a lot more about moving, evolution of a teacher and there are many ways to be teaching and learning. I didn’t know I was so important a part of my own session. It’s not just hearing and acting on instructions. I now trust my own observations and sensations as important information.

On Being Equivalent for Movement

I love this podcast. It is well-done, asks intelligent questions, utilizes expansive vocabulary, and explores the boundary and leading edge of where the mind, soul, spirit relates with the body and asks questions that explore that ever changing leading edge. I’m a massage therapist, healer and student of Pilates and this podcast is not just about talking about exercise. It is rather about exploring the spirit of the intention behind Pilates and exploring what does it mean to pursue healing and a return to vitality and health. Worth listening to. Worth being present to the evolution. It is an enjoyable and intelligent exploration of the intangible and is a delicious playground for the mind.
