The Power of Touch

5 min - Special


Touch is an integral part of Pilates instruction that has become minimized or lost over the years. Madeline Black explores the power of touch and she urges us to explore, study, and embody trusted touch. By learning how to integrate touch through educating our hands, we can enhance movement and go deeper inward. When we can take someone inward during movement, we will find change.

This was filmed at the 2014 Pilates Method Alliance Conference in San Diego, California.

Very well put. I have been to countless Pilates studio where the instructors have never touched or guided me through movement, what a pity as a thousand words could never been as powerful as an intentional directional touch.
Beautifully said, thank you. After many accidents and operations to repair my body I only began to really release and expand the movements when I started working with two excellent teachers who were not afraid to touch!! It makes all the difference.
