Pilates Elephants

By Breathe Education

Magical thinking and factually incorrect beliefs abound in many industries and Pilates is no exception. Most Pilates education is decades out of date at best, and at worst just plain pseudoscientific. Many of these false beliefs have become accepted wisdom in the Pilates industry but are massively at odds with accepted science and best practice in exercise, health and movement teaching. This inconvenient disconnect means there are lots of topics in Pilates that are Elephants in the Room - things we don't question because it's a bit heretical to do so. Well, we're here to change that. We'll talk about all the Elephants from posture, to core strengthening for low back pain, to scapular stabilisation ... oh boy the list is a very, very long one! Warning - we swear. But we have cute accents. PS: Yes stabilisation is spelled with an "s" if you're in Australia This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: AdBarker - https://adbarker.com/privacy
