You get your message out, people get information, information that proves the quality of what they teach better than a lot of these people that can really move. Or you want to come with me? Come on, let's go and see some secret style magazine. See that pocket a minute on the damn slow. It's about love the end of the day. And we get to hang out and have fun and check out great ideas.
Tell me, Amy, you're such a star. How has plies anytime effected your life? A lot is anytime has affected my life in so many ways. I've met you, I've gotten to know you. I've gotten to know lots of different people in the command PyLadies community. I am the YouTube phase for Palladio's anytime. Uh, I've taught over 115 classes, hundred and 15 classes on your nuclear, your team classes I think and maybe more, I'm not quite sure, but I am now hosting people when they come to the studio, I'm there on a weekly basis when our guests, teachers come into the studio and I get to take them out to dinner and get to know them better. Dina, so you do eat then? Cause I'm showing up.
People ask all the time, do you eat? Of course I'd love to eat. Well you did the breathing exercises afterwards to flatten the abdominals down after you've eaten. He know I have to travel and I've traveled so much this past year. How people don't know about the lineage. They have no idea of where Pohlad has come from, where the exercise is derived from.
And I think it's special for them to understand so they can really truly get a grasp of what they're actually chairing. I couldn't agree with you more. I spoke to somebody in the hotel this morning, an older man who lives here in Florida and saw the his method Alliance, you know, bag I was carrying and he asked me about Pilati. So he goes, well what is that? And I said, actually it's named after and a real man named Joseph [inaudible]. And just so that's one person in the real world. But even our young teachers out there don't know Ramana, they don't know the name Ramana Chris and Alsco. So we're teaching, we're educating and we're getting more the younger teachers to know who came before them. It's incredibly, they have to know well, they have to know that to know what's special about why they're doing it and why are they queuing this specific way. Why is this touch this meaningful touch? Why is that concept so meaningful? They need to know where it came from, that embody it. I think embody and also the Joseph plies was a man.
And it's not just for women, it's not for women. It's, it's, I mean it is for women, but it is for men. More men should do polite. It's for all of us, for children. So come and join us and have some fun with this. So I'm here, I'm privileged to interview Carissa, who is the QA.
You and Christie were at lunch, you are brainstorming kind of thinking, well how can we make an impact? And the decided is to do the legacy project. Please tell us what that experience has been like. Um, it's been amazing. I mean I feel like the thing that was most important to me,
And also about healing, you know, so the, the way that those teachers healed their clients the same way that we heal our clients and that we can also heal as a community to come together and just do the best for everyone. What as a team we foster longer than we are as an individual. And the play's legacy is all about this. To help you understand that we're here for you to share some here's sands into
It's so wonderful to be here. You know, um, you were blessed to be one of the GRTs. Of course we were blessed to have you as one of the duties. Tell me, what was you looking for for that next Pele's anytime instructor. It is so interesting because we received so many videos from all over the world and eh, really what we wanted to do was to look at the quality of the teaching as well as the performance of the instructor. It's a mixture of safety, a performance queuing and that kind of magical thing in teaching where there's a connection between the student, the teacher, and the audience is looking for them as well. Skill is a very, very big important part as well as the proper balance between how you get the person to really be successful in performing the exercises. It was challenging but great. No, I think that's a great answer.
The connection is all about, so actually connecting to the words with their body, with what they're saying. Now I know you've traveled a lot and we've also been to Korea, so when you to shower with them, that funny experience that we had, what was that costume we were wearing? They gave us that costume. It was called a hanbok and it was a traditional Korean costume that is used for weddings and formal downs. Yeah, absolutely. And so it had many different layers. We had big long petticoats and skirts over that and then a jacket that tied and it was all done in sale.
They had each one made individually for all the presenters and we not own, they were presented on the stage with these beautiful gowns and traditional costumes for the men as well. But then we got a little bit out of control and ended up on the floor doing the hundred in these giant gowns. It was really fun. And also I would like to add at this point that Korea is a very new market for [inaudible] and what I liked about it so much is that they are really trying to bring over quality instructors and begin their programming with great education. I think it's very, very important that whenever a new market starts up that they really look to what is working and not just imitate the work but educate the work.
We start here, it was in Vegas of course, and we asked you whether you would come on Polis anytime and you gracefully accepted and we're so blessed to have you tell us. What was your experience like?
The memoriam was very upsetting to see such a courageous man. Is that something you would love to share to everybody about him?
And he has contributed so much to the [inaudible] community.
And this is before drinks. What would you tune in? Tune in? Lighter. Thank you. Three. Huh? So I'm here with the amazing,
And you've had a great project to represent the legacy of Romana. Um, I'd love you to share exactly how that experience has affected you.
Last year we didn't see him, but we've got him here. So we're very happy. And this year has been an incredible, for a year for you, you've moved bound back to customizer. I know you out there surfing probably every day or is it right? So tell us why did you move? What, what is your purpose for your moving down to the customizer?
I wanted to snowboard, I wanted a mountain bike. I want to do, just get in touch with elements of life that I love and uh, bring a balance back to my life. But in all truth and in all honesty, eyes really missing the business. So yeah, I was, I was missing getting my hands on people. I was teaching a lot, teaching a lot at conferences, teaching a lot at events. But, uh, what I enjoy most is just getting my hands on people, teaching and taking control of my business again, and just being in the studio in the headquarters and uh, being there for the thousands of people that have put their confidence in me and trust in me.
And that's what I love. It's a center of beautiful, positive energy and high caliber education.
Just tell us a little bit about that.
And we had about a hundred people in the class and it was a phenomenal experience. That was the highlight
I didn't want to be biased.
They're already incorporating concepts of what they're going to bring to the profession. They're incorporating, uh, you know, the skills of opening a practice in a, in a studio. And I mean, just the whole, the whole picture of being a [inaudible] teacher, it sounds incredible. You know, the, the very beginning from day one, you know, it's like they're halfway through the program now and they're already beautiful teachers.
How, how's it feel like to come meet with you mommy? It feels amazing to be here and it's so Freddy and it's really fun as your mom inspired you a lot to do. Polities yes. And I have to ask you this as he helped you, um, how'd you feel like it's helped you on your everyday life at school? Well, I um, had a knee injury and it really helped me like recover and helped me like with a reformer work. It helped me get better and heal. So great. We'd love to hear things like that. Maybe you'll inspire lots of children watching this, including my daughter.
I want her to do more. Politesse is too, it's good for you. And they'd love to talk about your, you had a great conference this year and you are the Q writer for Ron, flashy for the Polaris legacy. Please share with us exactly you have footage and footage of one Fletcher in you is how inspiring has this been for you? Well, I think that the opportunity that Polonius anytime provided to, to establish Ron's legacy was, um, was tremendous and really, um, plotty said anytime was the only venue that I can imagine, um, providing this opportunity for the pilots for all this time. The time has come and people are hungry for the history of the work and, and to really know our heritage. And um, so so far it's been sort of whisper down the lane, you know, it's been, um, it's an oral history and to really hear, um, as, as close to the source as possible from each of the different lineages. Um, and, and to know that it's a work in progress is, is really exciting to me. You know, this isn't the end, this is just the beginning of our history. Um, and so much has happened in the past two years including our conference, um, including the movement of movement video or, or movie that just came out.
Um, and I think the time has come to really tell the is history in a meaningful way. I'd love to hear your conference. I hear wonderful things about it. What was one of your highlights of it was, um, the title of the conference was shared traditions and um, we featured five of the Pilates lineages, the same five that plots anytime as is featuring. And, um, the feeling at the conference was, um, there's, there is more that similar, there's more that binds us than is different. Yeah. So with all this research that obviously you've been doing, is there anything that you didn't know that you've found out? Well, it was interesting. I had a conversation with Brett Howard this morning and, um, as, as you know, he's, he's their Vermont a teacher and, and Ron and Romana were not, they weren't close. Um, and, and Brad said to me this morning, he said, Curia of all of the five, Ron and Romana were the most similar and, and just their approach and in who they were as teachers and the fact that they were adamant that this the, this is the way that there is, there is a truth to Palazzo days. And, um, and, and they, they, they stayed very true to what they remembered from, from Joe and Clara. So it was wonderful to hear that because he said, I wouldn't have gotten that had I not gone to your conference.
We are going to be hearing so much. We're gonna learn a lot from this plies legacy that applies anytime of John and we have to thank so two wonderful people, a view to, to give up so much time to do this. And we truly thank you for doing it. Thank you for doing polarities. You are an next generation. You are the next in the lineage for the plys legacy. You realize that. Yes. Thank you. So I'm with the lovely Jennifer crease, a good friend of mine.
And so I know that after watching the submission tapes from a lot of these aspiring Pilates instructors, I kind of wanted to reach through the screen and be able to give them hands on and give them that VIM and vigor and that passion so that they would understand that what Peloton is really wanted was movement, not too much fixing movements. It is really the bottom line, you know? And I think that the other thing that people lose sight of is that it's an art. It's really so much more than an exercise system or a workout. You know? It's, it's what we saw in Mark Pedro's film and movement for movement last night, which he depicted so beautifully. It really is something that takes years to cultivate, to really know how to look at a body and diagnose it.
To know what someone needs.
And I think you've been such a great, you know, Crusader on this part and I think that's wonderful. Is up for 2014 gotta throw that in there.
So that's the synthesis of ancient healing modalities and actually was on piles. Anytime we filmed a small, a small snippet of it, I want to say it's already two years ago now, but it was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews and anywhere we take it, people love it and pull out. A's is in the synthesis, so I'm excited.
