Legacy Program - Honors


Legacy Program - Honors is the fourth and final phase of the Legacy Program.

The underlying theme is evolution and preservation, two seemingly opposed concepts. Yet Pilates cannot continue to thrive without both.

Rael delves into much of his own creations both in terms of the choreography and the equipment itself. Yet, it is always solidly and soundly grounded in the original works and principles of Joseph Pilates, paying homage to the founder and creator of the Pilates method.

This is a 3-day learning experience that includes 18 hours of instruction and learning.

Presenter: Rael Isacowitz
Dates: Sept. 30, 2024 - Oct. 2, 2024
