I presented BoneSmart Pilates® to a SOLD OUT crowd of 120 Pilates instructors at the IDEA World Fitness Conference in Anaheim, CA on Aug 17, 2014. I must admit I was terrified when I learned the workshop was full. My greatest fear was finding myself staring out at the participants and forgetting why I was there or what I was saying, like a deer in headlights.
Gratefully, that did NOT happen and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. My intention was to share all that I’ve learned from my own research as well as from my wonderful teachers, Sara Meeks and Sherri Betz. I’m honored to have had such a receptive and engaged group of attendees.
