S2 Ep1: Celebration!

By on Dec 7, 2017 |

It’s a whole new season and we are READY to CELEBRATE! In this first episode of Season 2, Debora, James and I go deep into the juicy, fuzzy, feel good realm of celebrating and what it means to celebrate our bodies, ourselves, our practices and just plain being alive. We have so many wonderful NEW things in store for you in season 2 including new music (thank you Joseph Quinn of Pilates Metrics for lending us your musical talents), a new (updated) website — thinkingpilates.com — which is SO close to being ready for you :), a new sassy logo (also almost ready ;), new ways to support us (if you love us) including sponsorships, and more ways to get involved with the podcast and the three of us. But…let’s stick to what’s most important and that’s this wonderful podcast. We hope you love it. We’re sure you will. Listen all the way through...

Ep 11: Developing Confidence

By on Aug 11, 2015 | 0 comments

In this episode of The Thinking Pilates Podcast Chantill and Debora explore creating space within teaching, space to be without all the answers and navigate the myriad challenges of teaching by developing a strong self-practice. Hear about how to cultivate self-reliance, ownership, personal responsibility, a dedication to develop yourself as a human being, to be more comfortable with uncertainty, and to be compassionate with oneself all through SELF-CARE & SELF-PRACTICE. This is the third in a trio of podcasts on this topic…and it just keeps getting more awesome! http://skillfulteaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/ThinkingPilatesPodcastMarch19.15band.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android |...

A teacher’s journey to transformation, change & embodying the practice… In this episode Chantill interviews recent TT graduate Stacey Mulvey who shares with us her journey to becoming a Pilates teacher that was not only surprising but life changing. Listen to Stacey’s story and find yourself, your struggles, fears, and successes in her experience – one that so many of us have shared. Learn more about how she embraced and embodied the method through physical practice, faced her fears, and learned to fake it to become it – to become a thoughtful, dedicated, and powerful teacher. http://skillfulteaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Ep.6TStaceyMulvey.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android |...

Ep 9: Breakdowns, Breakthroughs, and Support Along the Way

By on Aug 9, 2015 | 0 comments

In the next two episodes, Debora and I talk about the teacher training journey, where we can get held up, waylaid, thrown for a loop, lose our minds, and where and how we can support ourselves along the way. If you are in the midst of your TT or newly out of training, I think you are really going to enjoy this show. We explore some cool ideas about how to “bring into the light” the challenges you may face, preparing, enlisting help and support, and what it means to stay committed to the path of being a teacher. We are also looking for three types of teachers who would be interested in adding to this conversation: Those who are are just out of TT Those who are 1-5 years out of their TT And those teachers who are 5 years or more out of their TT We are very interested in what you would say about the process of becoming a teacher, how it took shape during your TT and after, who...
