38. What Does Pilates Do For You?, with John Garey

Pilates Elephants

What Does Pilates Do For You?What Does Pilates Do For You And How Will It Help You? Before We Dive Into That, Let’s Start With Some Of The Elephants In The Room — Pilates Won’t Give You Longer Leaner Muscles Or Make You Look Like A Dancer. Nor Does Pilates Hold A Magical Cure For Back Pain. But There Are Heaps Of Things That Pilates Is Awesome For, Including Movement Meditation And Finding That Flow State That Helps You Wind Down By Being Completely Present In The Moment. Plus, Your Body Always Feels Great After. Find Out What Our Guest, Internationally Renowned Pilates Expert, John Garey Loves About Pilates.What You Will Learn: What does Pilates do for you: why Pilates is a great exerciseWhy different springs work for different peopleHow Pilates allows you to progress and move with confidenceThe intangible benefits of Pilates and how they support good mental healthHow Pilates instructors can level up online via courses from experts all over the worldWhy building your tribe with Pilates improves your teaching technique Healthy Movement Pilates is about exercise and healthy movement, but different styles of Pilates approach different aspects of fitness and movement. John Garey joins us on the Pilates Elephants podcast to discuss what he loves about teaching an athletic form of Pilates. He describes why we shouldn’t get hung up on using a prescribed number of springs in a given exercise, but instead use the springs that allow us to progress our Pilates practice to where we want to be. The whole point of exercise is to be challenged and develop. Finding FlowPilates also aims to provide space for better mental health by encouraging the right movement. Your students are supposed to use the springs that work for them in the exercise that they’re doing and the stage that they’re at with their movement practice. As they develop their skills, the springs used should change as they progress their knowledge and change their body. Don’t let your students get fixated on where other people are at — encourage and empower them to focus on finding their flow.Find Your Tribe Still wondering what Pilates does for you? Well, one of the greatest things about doing Pilates in a studio or online is the wonderful community of like-minded people we create. Having a tribe is powerful, and it's one of the most positive things to come out of Pilates, the support you get bolsters mental health, gives you space to decompress, and energizes you for other parts of your life. As a teacher, being part of an engaged community can keep your creative juices flowing, so that you can keep that spark of freshness and joy.  About John Garey:John is the creator of John Garey TV and Pilates Grad School.
