Awake. Alive. And inspired.


The Thinking Pilates Podcast is a conversation and exploration of the rich layers of teaching Pilates beyond just technique. Author, mentor, coach and master teacher trainer Chantill Lopez, founder of,  along with master teacher trainer and mentor Debora Kolwey, of the Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, take on topics like: building confidence, the philosophy of teaching, the importance of personal practice and self-inquiry, student-centered teaching and empathetic coaching, how to build healthy student-teacher relationships, and how to balance the demands of work and life without burnout.

You will also find interviews with teachers from around the world chatting with Chantill about ALL the under-emphasized missing links that Pilates teachers are dying to hear more about. Listen and go deeper. You are sure to learn something about yourself, what kind of teacher you want to be, what your true purpose is and understand better what teaching really requires of us if we want to do it for the long run.


Listen and go deeper.

In these first three short snippets (Episodes 1, 2 & 3) of our podcast you will get to know a little about Chantill and Debora, why the name “Thinking Pilates”, and begin to explore their inaugural topic of how we, as teachers, can navigate all the clutter in our heads and get to the heart of our teaching, awake, present, and accounted for.
