We are pleased to be hosting Workshops and Workouts All Weekend with:
Sandy is the owner of Vintage Pilates in West Los Angeles, a studio dedicated to teaching Pilates the way Joe intended it. Students and teachers from around the globe have made the studio a destination and Sandy enjoys finding creative ways to make Vintage Pilates accessible. Under the direction of Jay Grimes, Sandy operates two Masters level training programs for certified teachers of all disciplines. At Vintage Pilates she aims to bring teachers together in a supportive community that encourages a deeper study and practice of Contrology, looking beyond the exercises to understand the entire method and philosophy of Joe Pilates.
Having taught movement for over 30 years, Sandy has a keen understanding of the body. She is best known for her “pleasant but powerful”, “creative but clear” approach to teaching. Clients often comment on her ability to positively transform people—with her hands, with her words, and with her belief in them. Teachers describe her as possessing a “wisdom” that encourages deeper understanding and independent thinking.
Sandy has studied Pilates with Lori Coleman-Brown, Dorothee Vandewalle, Romana Kryzanowska and Jay Grimes and is grateful to each of them for their individual brilliance and the generosity of their teaching. A perpetual student, Sandy has also received training in related areas such as Thai Yoga Massage, Reiki, Rice Release and Yoga which have developed her intuitive and tactile approach to teaching. Sandy holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Business Administration.

WORKING WITH YOUR EQUIPMENT
Joe created equipment to help you access, and stay connected to, your Center. The springs, straps, handles, poles, shoulder pads, pedals and barrels give you valuable feedback and guidance as you move. Deepen your workout by understanding how to use and learn from the equipment.
BACK TO BASICS
The Center is comprised of the back, the seat and the stomach. In this workshop we will focus on understanding how the muscles of the back work in every Pilates exercise, through both discussion and practice.
THE LESS USED EXERCISES
Sandy will review exercises that are seldom used on the Chairs, Guillotine and Barrels. Come in with requests for exercises that you want to review or that you want to understand more completely. This review will inspire you to address the needs of your clients in a new way. This workshop offers you the chance to expand your repertoire of useful exercises, and understand Joe’s Chairs, Guillotine and Barrels in a new way.
Play + Pilates = Vitality and the point of doing Pilates is to have more vitality in life. Bringing the element of play into your workouts will join the elements of freedom, control, balance, coordination and breath in your movement. If you play sports, come find out how this approach will sharpen your skills and improve your conditioning. If your workout has become too serious or static, come infuse new life into your workouts. If you are a teacher, come explore the many ways that students and teachers can benefit from the element of play.
