30 min
What You'll Need:
Cadillac
Jillian Hessel demonstrates the exercises that Carola Trier taught on the Cadillac. She explains how Carola was very good with tactile cues and spotting because she was a licensed massage therapist. Jillian also shares a piece of history because she uses a Cadillac that was built for Carola by Joseph Pilates himself.

Love this Jillian. I had been some of this teaching with hands on already, but the details here are very helpful so I can be even more proficient. Also like the details about the table, the Center ring and the side footstrap. Makes learning so much easier. Looking forward to seeing much more from you. Thank you!

A great session! You commented that you were using the leg springs for the side leg exercises, but they did not appear to be the heavy leg springs. What type of springs would they compare best to?

Thanks for your interest, and insightful question, Patricia! The leg springs are from New York, from the company that Carola originally ordered her springs, Newcombe Springs. They are quite different from Gratz, (lighter), and also slightly lighter than the Balanced Body Red springs. Most similar are the Stott leg springs, but the BIG difference too is the size of the foot loops, as I mention in the video. There is much more control with the smaller loops, both for the teacher, and the student!

Such a pleasure to see you work so hands on and being an X dancer myself, I enjoyed all the references. I met you years ago in1985 when Quentin Josephy use to have weekend workshops with the first generation teachers. Thank you. Would love to come out one day and work with you.

Follow the energy of what you created in that spring... go with the recoil.
