Hi, welcome. I'm Tracy Molly's here in Las Vegas for the annual 2012 holidays, anytime and [inaudible] style party. We are all here to have some fun and celebrate. The love at Polaris is anytime I have the ability to bring the plot of community together because everyone's represented. There's a sense of unity and love and support for the diversity in the community. You know, I love the PMA and I love the classes, but the party's diversity.com
First requisite of happiness is being physically fit. I moved in order to know that I exist. It's a way of appreciating the beauty of the body in many forms. We're not just teaching exercise, we're changing people's lives.
Argentina three times. Yes. Brazil, Japan in to Tokyo. And then of course my usual Europe from England, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain where uh, Germany, uh, Prague and a Kia. Out of all those countries, is there any common unity that you think all of any of them, they all and lacking anything that they're lacking that you think they need more education. They all need more education and they really need to know the unity of, of what we are supporting and doing here in the United States. Especially things like PMA continuing education foundation, you know, education, really learning about the equipment and learning how to create community. I think that's the most important message that we have. I really think that that the community that we have created here is one of the things that we need to continue to support and as it should be our message around the world after 33 almost 34 years of teaching.
It really is wonderful to see the new people and to gathered together with old friends as well. And we're hit tonight going to be doing exactly the same. Absolutely. So much fun.
We all adore what really, really does inspire you to keep going in the [inaudible] community. My sister and who? My sister. Yes. Yes. She and I are really partners in my work. Um, she never learned to speak or feed herself and um, so and we grew up together with, um, the sort of movement and sound music being our language together. So, um, I carry that forth with every one of my clients. So that's, you know, yes. You see, and that's something that no one has ever asked before.
So you're the first one different. Nobody knows. I moved in order to know that I exist. So there are times that I'm just a little bit, you know, I can't remember if I left myself on the baggage claim in O'Hare or maybe going around in lax. So I know that if I just do some concentrated movement that all know where I am. So we're here with Wendy LeBlond a propel. Did I say that correctly?
Some here with Kiva Saban.
I would not be teaching Caladrius if it weren't for Ron. Um, he, he was, he really is five. I would probably practice philosophies, but I wouldn't be in the position. And where did you sit in a future one? Fletcher's, well, I, what we say and steps not breadth. We don't want to, um, we don't want to take this, this work beyond who can teach it and who has passion for teaching it. And so it's, it's, we, we find one person at a time who understands the vision, who understands the quality of movement that we're looking for. And that's how we developed the program.
And the work colonies can be very linear. And I think that Ron was not a linear person and people were drawn to that. And one of the last things he said to me was, I envisioned moving in circles and everything has around us to it. And, and I think that, um, you know, that's one of the things that people were drawn to and he was also just a huge character, you know, wonderful stories. Yeah. Just, you know, you never knew what you were going to get. So here with the infamous rant,
Pow has Maddie's anytime it's defected you, your business, you personally in any way.
What is your biggest inspiration you've been in for 22 years? That's a long time to stay inspired. Yeah. Yup. Yeah. Well from the very beginning when we first opened our studio took literally 22 years ago, November 5th, we had a mission from the start that [inaudible] should heal the world and we've really just absolutely never veered from it. What will we be doing in 2013 we were so excited. We finally launched center line, which is our equipment line that we developed with a bounce body.
And so that's, it's been out about a year, but it's really just kind of slowly catching on. So I think that we'll do a PRI big push for that. Um, we do have our loss treasures workshop, which we've taught several times and it's so great. It's, it's, it's amazing workshop. It goes over really well and we've just recently also filmed for DVDs to go with it. So a lot of that archival material, which is one of the classes I did on a lot, is any time with some of that archival material and people have been coming up at the Santa much. They loved that. So we had that big workshop coming up and then just lots of traveling. I think PI's anytime.
It's so great because there are just people on this earth who have no other access. Lottie's be an expert that happened in the industry. They've got luck to share one of them and we would write crap. Thanks. And I mean I just think it's a wonderful thing and it certainly has completely caught fire, you know, and become transformative. Yeah, yeah, yeah, exactly. So I'm right here with Brett who is amazing.
I love the archival information, but I just love working with children because there's so much more where it can go
I would say definitely confidence and then also just the right to play and be a kid.
So we have a professional credential which protects and identifies what a polarities teacher is and we're able to use that now to be understood by professionals and other industries. What do you foresee in the future if advertisement headlines? Obviously bigger, more awareness. I think that what we're beginning to see is um, chapters developing another countries, chapters of developing in the U S um, more unity, more identity. Really that's what the PMA is about in many, many ways. We, we don't want the lollies to encroached upon or subsumed under other umbrellas. Like it's not a subset of being a personal trainer. It's not a part of being a physical therapist.
I mean that's the wonderful thing about the PMA. Some people say we're the Switzerland of philosophies. Everyone is welcome from every lineage, from every area and to come together and learn and share information and encourage each other. There's so much traveling that goes on with [inaudible]. Teachers are going around the world all the time and it's just a fantastic way to unify people. It's not just a hobby. It's a true profession. Yes, exactly. That's what the message we want to get out.
He was one of the first instructors on [inaudible] anytime. And I love him cause he's amazing. Great dancer. He paid me. No he didn't, but he's a fellow Brit. We Britt stick together.
34 started in London as well. Individually teachers in the early seventies. You [inaudible] Oh man. But I'm not changing my never asked. Um, but uh, yeah, so I've been teaching it and inspiration I think really is, I just like people, I like working with people. You know, when they come into the studio, they've got a story to tell and I listen and want to be part of it, I suppose. Yes. Do you see your approaches changed? Was he being very consistent? Oh no. The post changes every day. You have to be a comedian in this work. You know, you can't go rip somebodies ass and then turn around and then you're going to turn around and do it to the next person. You can't, you know, people come to you for different things and that's when you go to turn around and, and be that comedian. What people don't realize is that we learned from them.
We learning from them every day. You don't learn something today. You're finished as a teacher. I think
And absolutely great. Very interesting. I'm sure a lot of people, how do you see a lot is growing in the UK as it grown exponentially? It's, we're sort of pattered out now, but it is, it's still, there's still a lot of interest and I think the, um, we've got a situation where there almost too many teachers and not enough. So I think that's balancing out, you know, when you train too many people, a lot of people are rushing for the jobs, but that is, that is getting, it's much better now.
And he said exactly the same.
That is something you're gonna look forward to seeing seen Allen hood man next spring. So I'm right here with a very, very,
How do you feel by coming back? I mean, do you feel like a new person? I mean, you know, it's incredible. I actually, I was creating her body cool mind, the new series which I've been working on. So I think when someone is in production years, they're not quite as visible publicly. So I didn't, I felt like I sort of retreated from the Polonius community for a bed. Um, because to be honest, it wasn't nearly as welcoming or a warm as it is now. And I think it's really important to acknowledge that, that I think that now, especially because of the lot is anytime and because of what Christie has done with Ted and John, that there's a sense of unity and love and support for the diversity in the community. And I, for one, I will tell you that when I went for the first time and I was at the studio in Carpentaria, I felt so overwhelmed, so incredibly emotional and so grateful that this was the feeling I always wanted to have about the lattes. And here was this woman who had assembled this incredible a team to bring that feeling to the community. And it's, it goes well beyond just the Palladia community. I think it's emblematic of what the planet needs to feel, that we all need to feel [inaudible] which is what you adequately do.
And thank you for everybody respected in the industry because people need that continuing education that you provide. Thank you. And what is cause you now, what is inspiring you to keep going? You know, it's interesting. We saw the tribute to Ron Fletcher today and he was saying that movement is life. And, and for me, I would have to say something very similar. And when I was at Valadez anytime about a month ago, I, I talked to everyone about the, the Latin root of the word inspiration, which is in sped audio and in sped on the lot.
It has a nice name and it means to breathe into the, into. And so yeah, from the time I'm a kid, I've always been interested in what makes people move, what inspires them, what's the purpose of the movement, what is the purpose? And what is the purpose of living? I mean, I could get very existential, but from me, what gives my life meaning and purpose is to see how movement helps people to transform and literally, literally from the inside out. And so yeah, that's not, I felt like transpo because everybody out that is coming to Florida is anytime for transformation, whether it's physically, emotionally, and that's what philosophy stuff, that is what it does. And I think that's why joke a lot is began, you know, investigating the life of the mind and the body. And I feel like I just, I love PyLadies anytime because I feel like it's a playground for all of us.
We get to send them and play with each other. Maybe I shouldn't have said that it's construed, but yes, I think it's just, um, it's just a wonderful time that we're living in now. We all have the responsibility of helping others who have not yet been made privy to this. You have to come along, come along, come along, come and join us and have some fun.
