Description

Join in on this fun course as we incorporate a large stability ball into a Pilates-based private or group class. Discover the many ways the unstable surface of the ball can challenge a client's core stability and balance. Use the ball as a prop for the creative support it can provide when no other Pilates equipment is available. These techniques on the ball can be applied to many mind-body modalities of fitness.

I am a retired ballet dancer. My passion is health & fitness, and helping people get into the best shape of their lives! Pilates saved me from terrible back pain when I was a professional dancer, and I have been teaching for over 35 years. I also love skiing, swimming, hiking and yoga. I have written a book, Pilates Basics, and I also have instructional DVD's for both Pilates enthusiasts, and Pilates teachers. You can my classes online on YouTube, and Pilates Anytime.
