Movement is Life

5 min - Special


The ability to move is something that most of us take for granted. Brett Howard shares an instance where he learned how precious movement is when he was unable to move after a serious injury. Pilates helped him slowly "return to life." Since he has recovered, we are now able to enjoy his passion and beautiful movements in this inspirational JOE Talk.

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

beautiful. thank you. i once worked with children with disabilities on a Navajo reservation and the children couldn't move. the only smiles we could elicit were when we (occupational therapists) brought the children outside and they could feel movement of wind or the warmth of the sun. For some reason your talk made me think of this. :) Movement is tied completely with your emotions, like you said, and vice versa. :) We are So fortunate to be able to MOVE and to use pilates for rehab. I am not sure I will ever get to your skill and ability levels re: movement, but any movement I do helps me, my back, my spirit, my life. We are most blessed to have passion for pilates and movement. :) thank you.
