Rhinebeck Pilates will host Pilates at The Pillow: The Lost Art and New Science of Joe’s Mat, from April 26 to 28, at Jacob’s Pillow in Becket, Massachusetts—a venue legendary in the Pilates world.
“We have put together some of the most experienced and knowledgeable Pilates teachers to bring forth a variety of mat work sequences scarcely taught, as well as different mats as apparatus that Joseph Pilates invented, taught and practiced,” says Terianne Neden, manager of Rhinebeck Pilates. “In addition to three exercise workshops, a science-based lecture will support and underscore how special the exercise method was from the beginning, and how it still stands true today.”
The conference will be “nothing less than historic,” she says, bringing to light what Pilates originally intended for his mat work and mats. Attendees will take a field trip to his original studio to view his property and some of his original equipment, belongings and pictures. They will also exercise at Jacob’s Pillow, the location where he taught for many summers.
Instructors will include Sean Gallagher, Pamela Pardi, Maria Vorrias and Elaine Ewing, all certified teachers of Authentic Pilates, with collective experience of more than 100 years.
