Paige Dent ~ Third Generation classical Pilates instructor
Paige Dent, a third generation classical Pilates instructor began her love of movement as a young competitive all-around gymnast where she learned hard work and discipline. Later, when she discovered the Pilates method, she delighted in knowing it was a natural evolution of her gymnastics training. In 2005, after experiencing what she now describes as, “Pilates lite," Paige took the next step and became certified with Power Pilates in Atlanta, Georgia. A move to England offered Paige the chance to take her classical Pilates education and mix in what she was learning from her husband, Alex, an Osteomyologist. Together they were inspired to create comprehensive health program designed to encourage their clients to take control of their long-term health through movement, clinical therapies, detoxification and lifestyle strategies. As classical Pilates was a large component of their program, Paige grew more and more frustrated because the apparatus she had at the time, would not accommodate the classical repertoire. Then three years ago, Paige became an online student of mine and she warned me it might be frustrating to teach her because her equipment wasn’t meant for the original Pilates method. We both concluded after a number of challenging lessons it was time to sell her equipment and purchase new from the leader of classical apparatus, Gratz Industries, Inc. Paige is here to share her incredible journey of reconnecting to the original exercises and sheer delight at being able to express her God given talents. Originally aired: August 16, 2019

Tracy Belcher ~ Classical Pilates has a PR problem!
My guest today is Tracy Belcher, the founder and managing editor of the popular Pilates blog and brand, Pilatay. Tracy is a classical Pilates instructor, Franklin Method teacher and former marketing and communications professional. And though Tracy is completely obsessed with classical Pilates, she says it has a public relations problem - actually two. Problem #1 - An awareness issue: People do not understand what classical Pilates is and what makes it different from its contemporary sister. Problem #2 - An image issue: There is a perception of elitism and exclusivity. As Tracy explains, “This generation of Pilates teachers and students don’t care about past drama, it’s a turn off. We just want to learn the work.”

Mary Bowen ~ Pilates Elder, Creator of Pilates Plus Psyche
I’m so excited to share with you a very special guest. Her name is Mary Bowen and she is the eldest of the Pilates Elders still going strong after 61 years of practicing and teaching Pilates. When Mary was 29 years old, she discovered Joseph Pilates while scanning a NYC newspaper and saw an article about him. He was being interviewed about his exercise studio and his Contrology method. What caught Mary’s eye was the accompanying photo of a man of medium height, barelegged, bare chested in tight shorts, canvas shoes, and a lion-like mane of white hair. Something else kept Mary’s attention. “I base my whole method on the baby and the cat, Joe said.” Mary had no baby and no cat, but her intuition told her to go meet him. That was 61 years ago. Mary doesn't hold back and shares stories of her experiences with Joe and Clara...It's a delightful interview, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Mercy Sidbury ~ The Pelvic Girdle
I’d like to begin with a little story. The pelvic girdle is similar to a lead actor in a play. The lead actor sets the tone and calls the shots. But there is also the supporting cast, and just like with the supporting cast, in the body, there are the hands, arms, shoulders, head, the feet, shins, and thighs. But they don’t move correctly until they get their cue from the lead actor, or from what is our topic for today, the pelvic girdle. Joining me in the studio is my guest is Mercy Sidbury and she’ll explain about the anatomy of the pelvic girdle.Original air date: May 13, 2018

Reiner Grootenhuis ~ Owner, Pilates-Powers studio
Reiner Grootenhuis was born in Berlin and his journey to finding his life’s work started as a 12-year-old racing cyclist, training 5 days a week, resting on Saturday and racing on Sunday. Reiner explored other sports as well, such as rowing and weightlifting, but all of these activities took a toll on his body and his physical pain was constant. There was something missing in his overall body conditioning and after much research he discovered autogenic training, a little known relaxation and mediation practice which helped to soften his overtrained muscles. By sixteen, Reiner began studies in the martial arts of Tai Chi Chuan and Kung Fu and graduated to teaching self-defense to women and children. Then in 1992 while watching television, Reiner saw an advertisement for the Pilates method and he filed the ad away knowing one day he’d try out Pilates. It was 2005 when Reiner finally decided to explore Pilates and bought a Pilates DVD to help him learn on his own. He took to the work immediately and was hooked. Reiner recognized that his previous trainings had prepared him for a career in Pilates and in 2010 he sought out a Pilates certification program called Body Arts Science International, also known as BASI. The following year, Reiner completed BASI’s certification for mat and equipment. There is much more to Reiner's story, tune in to this episode to learn more!Original air date: January 5, 2020
