Testimonials for Immersion™ Pilates Aquatics™:
I was lucky to get a chance to experience Jennifer Stacey’s new Pilates in the water. I’ve 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 the central 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

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 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

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!

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

I have been “Seraped!” I thought I understood the Serape;  the wing – center connection.   But now I really do after a day of IPA™! – SW

Jennifer Stacey workshop at PMA conference 10/28

Instantly access your centers and release hypertonic muscles!

Is stretching appropriate? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Did your back ever spasm after you stretched it? Do you feel ‘guarding’ in the area of an injury? Welcome to the stretch reflex! The stretch reflex often makes it difficult to recover from injury and bad posture, as it can vary day to day. 

The stretch reflex can also be beneficial if we use it in the correct manner. In Pilates, the stretch reflex is involved with animating the center through proper biomechanics, side back breathing and reaching the limbs long through space. Using imagery such as “When in doubt reach out” “reach the wall” or “opposition” often results in automatic recruitment of the two centers of the body. It is the key to allowing functional interaction of the various fascial and muscular interconnections, synergies and slings. We can optimize our relationship with gravity and enhance performance through the use of these interactions.

Once you know how to recognize and deal with the reflex, you can enhance mobility, flexibility, function and performance.

Learn how to magically address problems and enhance Pilates’ performance immediately in this fun, transformative class.
