Elaine Ewing

Rhinebeck Pilates is hosting a double workshop—Joe’s Natural Laws and How They Influenced His Work, with Sean Gallagher, and Historical Chair Exercises, with Elaine Ewing—on July 22, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The workshops last three hours each, with an hour for lunch in between.

The first workshop, a lecture, will explore the natural laws of nature and human physiology and how Joseph Pilates understood them in relation to health. Gallagher will explain how Pilates developed his exercise method, and its effects on the skeleton, connective tissue (fascia and sinews), and the circulatory, nervous, lymphatic, muscular and energetic systems.

In the second workshop, students will gain a fuller understanding of how Pilates used chairs as part of his method, and they will practice and learn his original exercises on the Wunda Chair and High Chair. In addition, Ewing will discuss many of Pilates’ philosophies, such as the importance of good posture, and Pilates’ continuous effort to make exercise convenient at home by incorporating exercise apparatus into the furniture we use daily. The cost of the double workshop is $250.

“This is an opportunity to gain more insight into the Authentic Pilates method, learn how Pilates can make you stronger and healthier, and meet other local people who share your interests,” says Terianne Neden, manager of Rhinebeck Pilates.

Rhinebeck Pilates is located at 6400 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY. For more info, visit or contact Elaine Ewing at 845.876.5686 or [email protected].
