Resources For Teachers

This is the Mecca of ST resources. Here you will find a ridiculous amount of written, audio, and video content as well as the Thinking Pilates Podcast. Enjoy.

Thinking Pilates Podcast

Pilates is a mindset. Movement is a practice. Teaching is a relationship. We talk about it all. The Thinking Pilates Podcast is a fun, edgy, insightful, and relevant (slightly irreverent) conversation that will make ANY Pilates teacher — or yoga, or dance, or anyone who teaches movement — pause and reconsider how they do what they do. Join us as we probe the inner edges of the Pilates industry and the outer limits of movement science, psychology, art, mindfulness and more. We’re in search of how to be better humans through movement and the Pilates mindset. It’s a wild ride. Jump on!
