I am so happy to be in Portugal to teach for the first time at Pilates by Maria Larsen Studio, Clube de Ténis do Estoril Avenida Condes de Barcelona 2765 Estoril. Portugal.


I would like to have the freedom to respond to the interests and needs of the group and the individuals in the group.

Each group is unique.

I will be including new material for those who have attended my workshop before.

My intention is to humbly pass on the spirit and precision, but at the same time, the freedom of Jerome's work, as I understand it. Like all great teachers Jerome was constantly changing and evolving. The way he taught me was different from the way he taught others. The essence was the same. He always responded to the individual.

Some of the aspects of the work that we will be exploring are:

• Dynamic and creative breathing.

• Therapeutic experiences (these did not come from Jerome but from a variety of sources) I have found to be deeply healing and prepare students for dynamic work.

• Exercises for stamina.

• Exercises for strength.

• Moving beyond our perceived limitations.

• Deep stretching.

• Just the joy of movement.

• Pilates as a preparation for dancing.

All of this will be through a variety of experiences on the mat, Reformer, Wunda chair and barre.

Last but not least I want to communicate the joy and freedom that the work brings.


• Pilates Teachers.

• Enthusiastic practitioners of Pilates.

• Dancers.

• Body workers.

It is not necessary to be "advanced" or in "good condition" but it is necessary to be open minded and receptive.
