New Pilates at 70

Every year, the approach to Pilates changes for those who follow the system. The work of young people is very different from the work of a mature person, and that of a mature person is different from the elderly. Changes in the work are noticeable, even if you look back just a year ago. And if you remember yourself 10 years younger than that, the difference in approach will be enormous. We put too much effort when we are young. We are fixated on muscle strength, on the effectiveness of execution, we are trying to set goals and achieve them, to prove something to ourselves and others. All this is natural and necessary. All stages of life must be accepted and lived. You can not throw and jump over something on the path of its formation and development. We learn from our teacher or teachers and try to follow their example when we start teaching ourselves. All this has been going on for some time. Until what you have learned from them grows within you.

I went through this more than once. Six and a half years of work with Joseph and Clara, 7 years with Bob Sid, 7 years with Romana, 7 years with Katie Grant, 5 years with Bruce King and at the same time 7 years with Jean Claude West (he studied Pilates in a studio in Northampton, where I taught for 27 years), and since 1995 with Continue reading

Interview with Disciple Educator of Lolita’s Legacy ™ by Ekaterina Smirnova

Ekaterina, in 2014 you received the status of the official Disciple Educators of Lolita’s Legacy ™. Ms. Lolita San Miguel has granted you the honorary right to teach and conduct certification in Eastern Europe for the Lolita’s Legacy training program. Many potential program participants are interested in the question, what path have you taken under the leadership of Elder Pilates to become the only second-generation teacher, Disciple Educator Lolita’s Legacy in Eastern Europe? How does it feel to be a student of the legendary Lolita?

Being a student of Lolita San Miguel is not only a great honor, but also a responsibility. When I went to study with her, I did not fully realize how global her impact on me would be. In addition to the knowledge gained (this was the main motive to learn from Lolita), I received a status that I must comply with because everything connected with the signature of Ms. Lolita San Miguel is a sign of the highest quality.
In order, I first took a two-year PMMP (Pilates Master Mentor Program) course. This is a training program for education professionals. Lolita does not teach Pilates here. Carefully selected program participants must already have a good command of the method, have a Diploma of the School recognized by it, and meet a number of criteria. This is a Continue reading
