I was lucky to get a chance to experience Jennifer Stacey’s new Pilates in the water. I have been practicing Pilates for close to 30 years, and teaching for 20. Feeling the work in the water was an amazing experience. My body was able to organize around thecentral axis and deeply feel the spinal flexion, extension, twisting and side bending of the work. For some reason the support of the water made it easier to feel the movement originating from the core. I highly recommend this work for anyone at any level to feel the Pilates work as it was intended. – Carol LeMaitre

HGdls2100copyright2015JStacey I had a blast doing Pilates Aquatics™ with Jennifer Stacey! As a Pilates teacher myself, I was amazed by how well Jennifer translated the Classical Pilates exercises to be done in and by the water. Pilates Aquatics enables you to easily feel your core working, and being in the pool is an especially safe way to exercise. This workout is both fun and challenging for beginning to advanced students of Pilates. – Alicia Stone

HGSLSLS2copyright2015JStaceySLC9550copyright2015JStacey copyI worked on the swim board during the retreat in Italy, that was organized by Jennifer  Stacey. I think the swim board is an important invention. The Pilates exercises on the swim board were easily adapted to my own capabilities / limitations. During the specific Pilates exercise organized to perform in the water is the upward force your
friend and your challenge. (That was very funny). Great results in a short period of time. After the first class, my neck and shoulders felt connected to the rest of my body. I believe that it is very important that during class we experienced great fun together. And certainly not in the last place, “Pilates on a Pilates Aquatics board™” is a mindful activity. I had to concentrate to keep the board under control and do the exercise properly. So I it was impossible for me ‘during the exercises to make my shopping list in my head. – Pam Garcia

Pilates Aquatics was full of “Aha!” moments for me. Doing Pilates in the water provided a slight shift in physics that allowed me to immediately feel the work in a deep way. The exercises felt very accessible, and working out in a pool setting is brilliantly energizing!
– Lawrence Stone
The Pilates Aquatics™ was an excellent method of doing Pilates.  What I found was that, despite the fact I have been doing Pilates for over 12 years, Pilates Aquatics™ requires greater effort to do the simplest Pilates exercises correctly which leads to a deeper level of work for the core muscles.  The need for a greater amount of balance due to the board buoyancy seems to exaggerate even the smallest movement, thereby requiring more concentration and doing the exercise correctly.  It is an exercise method I would strongly recommend. – Ken Klein

Shirley Archer (Pilates Teacher) wrote an article for IDEA Fitness Journal in May 2017: Water Fitness: The Science behind the Splash. P. 36 – 44. She states several studies. “Experts agree that water fitness is positioned for significant growth owing to changing demographics, improved equipment options and greater public awareness.”  “A new era of water fitness is here.” “Mounting research on the benefits of Aquatics Exercise supporting the claim that it helps people of all ages and ability levels.”

2018: Aquatics Exercise had the highest spike growth in exercise
