Oh my... I was there for this interview but watching it now it is just amazing. Linda Tarney speaks so perfectly to what a profound teacher is, Kathy was and we can all be it we never give up and stay the course.
I was there for this interview. I cried then, but I am beside myself now after watching this interview again. I can only imagine what it is like for you Blossom and Cara to listen to this beautiful interview. As someone much farther removed from Kathy than either of you, I still find myself full of gratitude for meeting Linda Tarnay and for getting to know Kathy Grant just a little bit better. Thank you.
Thank you Kristy and Cara for this interview! It really does portray a clear picture of Kathy. I was touched by the sense of "journey"- how Kathy worked so hard to make each one of her students work hard in order to learn about their bodies and respect their bodies; and also in order to earn her friendship. I think one can learn so much here about the essence of Pilates... much more than in many many classes! Thanks again! x Amit
Thank you for this interview. Linda Tarney and many of the players in her story were my teachers and fellow students at NYU, 1986-88. I too, did not "get" Pilates my first lesson with Clarice Marshall. And I missed by one year Kathy Grant's years with TSOA. But her message of honoring and listening to and being present with one's body has become my life's work as a Pilates practitioner and teacher for 20 years. Thank you Linda, for sharing your journey with Kathy and the dance culture at Tisch. It is a moving tribute to Kathy and the personal quest of all dancers. Thank you again! Deborah
