48. Merging Movement Science & Pilates with Greg Youdan

48. Merging Movement Science & Pilates with Greg Youdan

Today's guest is my friend, client, and colleague - movement scientist, Pilates teacher, and dancer Greg Youdan, MA, MS. I've been lucky enough to both work alongside and teach Greg at Real Pilates, take live workshops with Greg, and I've had Greg as an expert guest in my Pilates Teacher Mastermind® program.

Today we talk about Merging Movement Science and Pilates from a neuroscience perspective. You'll learn some of the actual science behind movement, and especially how we teach movement in the Pilates studio. There is so much goodness here that you can apply immediately, and lots to think about.
