Classical & Contemporary Collide!

I reached out to Lesley Logan about eight years ago when her book Profitable Pilates: Everything but the Exercises was published. Why? Quite simply, I wanted more business blogging on The Core for Balanced Body, and she had some rich knowledge and experience that helped inspire simple action on how to take charge of your business, rates, and so much more.

At the time, I didn’t realize she was a classically trained instructor, but over the years of the growth of our friendship and mutual respect in the industry, we’ve now become partners in many ways with her business coaching program AGENCY, as well as our annual coaching program called The WE+LLthy Mindset.

Coming up for us is the next exciting step in our journey….bringing our joy and love of movement and Pilates together with classical roots and contemporary FUNctional nuances in our workshop called Classical & Contemporary Collide at Pilates on Tour Chicago. As a contemporary Pilates based movement instructor, I was thrilled to partner with Lesley in this capacity.

We’ll be taking the FUNctional Five, (squat, plank, lunge, bridge, core), and I’ll be giving creative ways to contemporarily achieve strength, power, performance, balance, mobility, and more using Balanced Body equipment. Then, Lesley will take us through a classical series and order to ladder up and achieve the same using the Contrology suite of equipment.

We’re looking forward to a FUN and FUNctional mash-up which will leave you feeling grateful for the history of Pilates, as well as inspired to try some fresh movement strategies in your practice.

We can’t wait to see you there!
