Thank you, my dancer compadre!
I always feel happy when I watch you teach.
Thank you for your graciousness in sharing your Kathy Grant experiences, and...you also stand in your own talent and intuitiveness. Thank you for sharing YOU.
Love the heel cues. šŸ˜Š
(Oh, and thank you, too, for using several different people to demonstrate specificity for the person in front of you.)
Thank you once again Blossom. Love all the detail. So very helpful.
Blossom, thank you for the active aging versions! now I can start there and work towards the full version for exams lol. Starting pilates at 52 was difficult but I had to do it due to injuries. Desiring to become an instructor means I have to work 3 times as hard as my young supple peers :)
Thanks for demoing all the variations. Great Job! Barrellriffic!
