Alignment

Alignment Matters • Alignment is not Posture. - Katy Bowman

 

Breath

“Breathing is the first act of life and the last, our very life depends on it.” - Joseph H. Pilates

Ideokinesis 

One of the oldest body-mind methods originating in the Western world, offers a creative method for using imagination and mental processes to improve movement and posture.

We use imagery to affect better movement. This tradition, that goes all the way back to Mabel Todd (1874-1956), was developed and pioneered by Lulu Swiegard and Barbara Clark, and later by André Bernard and others. Sweigard borrowed the word ideokinesis, composed by two Greek words: ideo (thought) and kinesis (movement), from Bonpensière, a piano teacher, who applied imagery to his methodology. Ideokinesis can be translated roughly as "the image or thought as facilitator of movement".

Erin has learned the special imagery and technique of Kathleen Stanford Grant in the THE HERITAGE TRAINING®: A Post-Graduate Program for Pilates Professionals Taught by Cara Reeser.
