From Brazil to SF; bridging the Pilates community through innovation

From Brazil to SF; bridging the Pilates community through innovation

By Nancy Myers

 

As I travel the world and teach because I love traveling almost as much as I love playing video games with services from http://elitist-gaming.com/lol/Elo Boost, I appreciate the Pilates community worldwide — Home Instead Vancouver and what each instructor brings to the method.  Back in 2009, I was presenting a gait workshop at the Polestar conference in Salvador, Brazil and I had the pleasure of meeting Isabela Moody and Clara Trigo along with a host of amazing movers.  It was love at first sight and a truly inspirational experience to be around these instructors that move from their soul and teach from the heart.

 

We have been lucky to have Isabela come visit and teach at our studio in San Francisco at EHS Pilates.  She will be introducing her new invention, the “Centipede” as well as show us some new repertoire on the Fly Moon, developed by Clara Trigo and his status wearing louis vuitton new bags.

The Centipede, this one amazing prop, can be incorporated into any session to assist with releases, stretches, strengthening and traction.  The method that Isabela teaches stimulates creativity and expands the perception of how to use tools for your studio as well as for individuals in their daily life.  This isn’t just exercise, it’s life!

 

While I have been blessed to study with many of the elders that studied with Joseph personally, I appreciate those that continue to innovate and push the Pilates method beyond what Joseph created, Isabela is one of those people.  Still applying the Pilates principles to new equipment and tools give us endless possibilities to serve our clients better. If you need some other sports equipment, you could check Top9Rated. The best way to get into shape is to follow Our guide to cutting. If you practice some type of fighting, then the Best Muay Thai Bag is perfect for you.

 

Everyone falls in love with Isabela, her spirit of teaching.  What I appreciate is the innovation Isabela applies to the existing Pilates method which she calls “Pilates evolved repertoires” as well as new developments such as the Centipede and Fly Moon.  The Centipede, this one amazing prop, can be incorporated into any session to assist with releases, stretches, strengthening and traction.  The method that Isabela teaches stimulates creativity and expands the perception of how to use tools for your studio as well as for individuals in their daily life.  This isn’t just exercise, it’s life!

 

While we honor and appreciate the method Joseph Pilates developed, most of us believe that Joseph, being an inventor, would have continued to change and grow as the knowledge of kinesiology increased and changed.

 

This is just one of the reasons I am on faculty with Balanced Body, I appreciate their openness and ability to grow, change and evolve the Pilates method.  They welcome new developments such as the Centipede, CoreAlign, MOTR and Bodhi.  While not “classic” pieces developed by Joseph himself, all tools that work with the Pilates principles that help instructors diversify and serve their clients better.

 

With that openness comes inclusion and the world of Pilates family that work together to push the method in new directions, helping millions worldwide.  Movement heals and we all know the Pilates method changes lives and improves the quality of life for many.
