Black History Month 2023: Persist, Uplift

Black History Month 2023: Persist, Uplift




The Movement of Resistance – Persist & Uplift

To move the needle consistently and constantly towards equity for all, we must focus on resistance as a way to both persist and uplift! An invitation, if you will, for all to be in the room, join in the conversation without judgment, and share in the momentum and movement forward.

In Pilates and movement, exercise and progression take time to learn, grow and reap the benefit. Day 1 and day 20 of your practice will look entirely different. During the journey, there will be much persistence to find the movement inside your own ecosystem. 

Watch Misty coach Nicky in the Open Leg Rocker as she takes inventory of where her body is resisting and persisting through a challenging movement pattern requiring control, balance, and ultimately whole-body integration which leads to an uplifting experience!

Don’t forget; this journey doesn’t end here! We’d love to stay in touch and meet on the mat to unite all four of these weeks through conversation and movement. Register now for our FREE session with the theme of “Thoughtful Movement: Discussing and Exploring Movement and Resistance” on February 28th at 9a PT right HERE!



MISTY LYNNE CAUTHEN: I am the owner of Dragonfly Pilates Studios, a Professional Coach and public speaker. I was born to slay dragons, which is a complicated destiny due to the actual lack of dragons. For the past 20 years I’ve directed my energies toward educating people of all ages and stages about the power of movement to strengthen, balance, and heal their bodies. As a Balanced Body Master Instructor since 2008, I’ve trained the next generation of teachers to share the gifts of Pilates, Bodhi Suspension System, and Balanced Body Barre to their students so they can thrive in their best bodies; and as a business coach, I’ve helped movement studio owners slay the dragons that inhibit their success. My goal as a teacher is to always lead my students and clients to the joy of movement through grace, humor, and hard work. And I love telling people what to do, so that’s a bonus. NICKY TAYLOR STEWARD: My objective as a teacher is to empower clients and teachers to know and be better in their own bodies, thus making the work an integral part of their life-style. I love teaching and being a part of the process that enables someone to take ownership for changing, being better and bettering themselves. This is accomplished in client sessions and through workshops and mentoring for teachers, both new and experienced. I have been a professional functional movement teacher for 26 years and teacher trainer for 18 years. Combined with my professional dance training and career, movement and teaching movement has been a part of my life for 32 years. My movement training includes Stott Pilates, McEntire Pilates, Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis. In the spring of 2020, I began a new journey with James D’Silva and Garuda.
