What is Uniform Development and How do we Achieve it?
Joseph Pilates was very clear when he described the intent of his method. “Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body …” (Return to Life) “We must devote ourselves … to the uniform development of our bodies as a whole…” he states again definitively. He refers to this concept over and over in his book. Have you ever truly thought about what he actually meant when he said this? What does uniform development mean to you? To your Pilates peers? To your clients? The path and the outcome to uniform development may not be the same for each of us. Uniform development, or lack of it, has an effect on whole body health. When you teach, are you focused on this outcome? How does the Pilates method achieve whole body organization? What does “uniform development of our bodies as a who include?
We will explore this concept, and discuss these questions, in our Winter Workshop

We can fix this! In this workshop we'll cover what we need to know as Pilates teachers
to restore the neck to its proper orchestration – strong, supple, articulate, a conduit from
the brain to the rest of our body, a conduit of oxygen to our lungs, a conduit or nutrition
to our stomachs.
Every Pilates exercise will be enhanced and made more powerful and productive with
