loving the 100’s

This week we’re heading into our second Pilates video. This is an exercise you either love or hate’ the 100’s.  Am I right?
I want to share a little imagery that I use that makes me look forward to this great exercise.
You can practice this imagery without ever leaving your seat or try next time you’re in class.
I’d love to hear from you in the comments below about what you love about the 100’s and what imagery you might do.
Stick around for the end of the video for some archival film footage of Joe Pilates getting his groove on.


shoulder blade tango

Are you over training and getting more pain than gain in your shoulders?
This week we are going to get up close and personal with your shoulder blades.
With imagery and the Franklin Method find out for yourself if they are frozen to your ribs and preventing your arms from moving.
I hope you stay through the end of this short video for the dance party.
I have a special tango partner this week. Let’s keep moving and having fun!

Pilates Love

Dear One, 

JOe and toys

So, you’ve been doing Pilates for a while and want to breath some new life into your practice?

Or are you new to Pilates or you have friends or family who may want a peek into the genius of Joe’s work?

Want to get some inspiration?

In today’s video I am hoping to share just that with you.

After 22 years of practicing Pilates I find that I can take it to a deeper level still with breath and imagery.

Let’s do the Spine Dance!


It’s time to start the PARTY!

party 1


     Actively in





I am so excited to finally launch my first weekly movement video for the PilateZone family to share.

 I know you are getting all the benefits of walking through the studio door and working your a** off.

Now you can get weekly reminders, insights into the work or exercise tips to share with friends and family who have been wondering what keeps you so young.

This week I am sharing Franklin Method imagery for a healthy spine you can do while sitting at your computer.  

Next week, taking it to the floor.

Pilates, yoga, The five Tibetan Rituals that keep you forever young, as well as home workouts will be coming.

Just a warning, I’m getting a little silly with this first one, but I promise you will get real workouts as the weeks go by.

Please share this video with your friends and family and we will really get this party started.

Let me know what you would like to take a deeper look at in the comments below.

with much love and wishes for a grand life in a healthy body,
