Contrology Mentorship 

"Classical Pilates" is more than a stagnant list of exercises memorialized in black and white photos from a century ago. Rather, Joe Pilates' Contrology system is a brilliant, living, fluid way of problem solving. Restore the "zest and pleasure" of your teaching and your own practice and learn how to think in this focused journey designed for experienced teachers.

This is a physically demanding, experiential-based program designed to get Contrology into your body and mind. As Jay Grimes says, we don't really "teach" Pilates; rather, we are guides to help others discover. We cannot guide others to places we haven't been. 

While the seminars and workshops have specific schedules, the other components are self-scheduled and will require focus and consistency to successfully build the strength and skills over 6 months required to participate in the final workshop.

The Hard Shit: Where the Pilates System Can Take You

What This Isn't 

  • A comprehensive review of every exercise on every apparatus

  • A pissing contest

What We Will Be Doing Instead

  • Learning a common language 

  • Developing a framework in which to make sense of exercises, including the ones we know and the ones we have yet to meet

  • Considering how the history of the Pilates industry shapes what we have been taught today 

  • Applying our intuition and creativity in meaningful rather than gratuitous ways 

  • Fine-tuning the efficacy of our teaching 

  • Getting ripped
