Several of our instructors were fortunate enough to be able to attend an event held at Pilates Connection in Evanston, IL. We took lessons with some of the original Teacher Trainers of Romana. What an incredible opportunity! We were also able to observe the other lessons occurring in the studio and see the various styles of teaching within this amazing art form. It was such a refreshing reminder that so much can be achieved and learned from keeping the work “pure” and teaching to the body that is in front of you. Fancy tricks (i.e. flipping upside down, flying squirrel, etc…) are tons of fun! But they are rarely appropriate for clients (and many teachers for that matter!). The real “meat” of the work can be studied and observed over countless years to come.
